Former Vikings S Sharper charged with rape
The Associated Press
Posted Feb 14, 2014
Former Vikings safety Darren Sharper has been charged with drugging and raping two women in Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles County district attorney’s office says former NFL defensive back
has been charged with drugging and raping two women.
A district attorney’s statement says Sharper will be arraigned Friday on two counts of rape by use of drugs, four counts of furnishing a controlled substance and one count of possession of a controlled substance.
The felony case involves alleged incidents in October and January. Prosecutors say Sharper met women at a West Hollywood nightclub, invited them to a party but stopped at his hotel room, where the crimes are alleged to have occurred.
Sharper was arrested Jan. 17 and released on $200,000 bail.
Prosecutors will seek to raise his bail to $10 million because the Miami, Fla., resident faces similar investigations elsewhere.
VIKINGS, U OF M AGREE ON UPGRADES
The Minnesota Vikings and the University of Minnesota have agreed on more than $6.6 million worth of enhancements to TCF Bank Stadium for NFL game use, including a new heating system for the playing surface.
Increased storage space, concession upgrades in the concourses, additional heating in the stadium and temporary bleacher seats to increase capacity are also part of the package.
The Vikings will share the facility with the Gophers in 2014 and 2015, and the Vikings will pay the university up to $3 million per season to play there. The upgrades were already included in the original $975 million budget for the new stadium being built downtown.
Vikings officials presented the modifications to university Board of Regents Thursday. Construction work is scheduled to begin next month.
