Former VFL star Darren Sharper, 38, was charged Friday by Los Angeles prosecutors with drugging and sexually assaulting two women. Prosecutors said he’s also under investigatin for allegedly attacking at least five other women in three other states.

Sharper is charged with seven rape and drug counts involving four women he allegedly met at a West Hollywood nightclub.

Court documents laid out a series of allegations against the five-time Pro Bowl selection. According to the court documents, Sharper would meet the women, oftentimes at a nightclub, and would then take them back to his hotel room or another location. Once there, Sharper allegedly gave them alcohol and the women would be rendered unconscious.

According to the report, some of the women allegedly awoke later to find Sharper assaulting them or a friend. Authorities said Sharper’s DNA was found on one of the women during her medical exam.

Court documents revealed additional allegations in Las Vegas, New Orleans and Tempe, Arizona, that are all still under investigation.  In an unrelated incident stemming in New Orleans, a woman said she met Sharpe in Septemeber where she allegedly took a drink from him and woke up later to find him sexually assaulting her.

The former New Orleans Saints safety did not enter a plea when he appeared in court, and remains free on $200,000 bail. He has been ordered to surrender his passport, and to remain in Los Angeles, but to avoid the nightclub where he met four of his alleged victims. Sharper has played for the Green BAy Packer, Minnesota Vikings, and most recently worked as an analyst for the NFL Network. Sharper has been suspended without pay after his arrest.
