Darren Sharper Court Appearance

(CNN) — Former NFL player Darren Sharper has been charged in another sexual assault case — this time in Arizona.

A grand jury in Tempe indicted Sharper on two counts of sexual assault and three counts of administering dangerous drugs relating to an incident alleged to have happened on November 21, Tempe police said Wednesday.

Detectives served Sharper’s attorney with the indictment on Wednesday morning, police said.

Authorities have said Sharper, 38, is under investigation in four other states — California, Louisiana, Nevada and Florida — in cases of alleged sexual assault. So far, he has been charged only in California and Arizona.

In February, he pleaded not guilty in a Los Angeles court to charges of rape by use of drugs, furnishing a controlled substance and possession of a controlled substance, all felonies.
