Details disclosed in investigations of ex-NFL star Darren Sharper

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Prosecutors say former NFL safety Darren Sharper, who has been charged with raping and drugging women in California, is under investigation in connection with five more rapes and 11 druggings in other states.

Sharper appeared in Los Angeles Superior Court on today but his arraignment was postponed until Feb. 20 at the request of his lawyers.

Prosecutors immediately filed a motion to raise his bail to $10 million and outlined details of other alleged assaults and druggings in Las Vegas, Tempe, Ariz., and New Orleans.

Sharper has not been charged in the other jurisdictions and remains under investigation.

In the bail motion, an investigator described a pattern in which the former football star met women at clubs, lured them to a hotel or apartment then drugged and raped them.

His lawyers said outside court he will be exonerated.
