      Former NFL star and five-time Pro Bowler Darren Sharper is facing rape allegations.

      The former safety was arrested in Los Angeles, Friday night.

      Sharper is charged with two sexual assaults, which police say allegedly happened in October and the other this month.

      New Orleans police are also investigating him for a sexual assault that allegedly happened in late September.

      Sharper retired after 14 seasons to become an analyst for NFL Network, but the network says Sharper is suspended, following his arrest.

      Sharper posted a $200,000 bond and his arraignment is scheduled for next month.
