Arrest warrant details rape claim against Sharper
NEW ORLEANS- A New Orleans arrest warrant says detectives learned from witnesses that former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper and an associate acknowledged they had non-consensual sex with two women.
The warrant was released by New Orleans police on Thursday in an investigation of Sharper and associate Erik Nunez.
The warrant does not elaborate on the allegations by witnesses.
Sharper remains in a Los Angeles jail after pleading not guilty to rape and drug charges in California. His attorneys were set to argue for his release Friday afternoon.
Louisiana prosecutors have not yet formally charged Sharper.
The athlete's Los Angeles-based attorney Blair Berk referred a call for comment to Sharper's New Orleans lawyer, Jason Williams, who was not immediately available.
Nunez has been arrested in New Orleans, where a judge on Friday set bail for at $400,000.
His lawyer Herbert Larson there is no evidence against his client.
