Details began to emerge in the Arizona case, with the women saying one of them was drunk from the alleged tainted drink that she had to be helped up to their apartment. In the Tempe investigation, the crime lab tested glasses that Sharper used to make drinks and discovered that the sleep aid Ambien was visible in traces. Tempe detectives have been working with Los Angeles detectives in obtaining evidence although there has not been a public record of what was gained.
Sharper’s arraignment was held on Feb. 14, where he was officially charged for the two counts of sexual assault in Los Angeles.
This same month, Sharper was fired from the NFL Network without pay.
