Darren Sharper wakes up in jail today in Los Angeles amid rape charges filed in New Orleans.
The L.A. Sheriff's Office says the former Saints player he turned himself in and was booked at 8:24pm on Thursday night.
The jail website says, "NO BAIL."
It also states that there is "No Information On Release Date."
This is the same facility where Sharper was booked last month on charges he raped women in California.
He was released then on $200,000 bail. After the D.A. filed formal charges, a judge raised the bail to $1 million. Shaper had been free on bond until the NOPD issued and arrest warrant for Sharper on two counts of aggravated raped.
Detective in New Orleans say they had sufficient evidence to have Sharper arrested on allegations he drugged two women and raped them in an apartment in the Warehouse District.
Sharper is also under investigation for alleged rapes in Las Vegas, Phoenix and Miami.
Earlier today, a second man charged in the same case as Sharper, Erik Nunez, surrendered to authorities. Nunez turned himself in at the Orleans District Attorney's office, accompanied by his defense lawyer.
