LOS ANGELES » The Los Angeles Police Department says former NFL star defensive back Darren Sharper has been arrested on suspicion of rape.

LAPD says Sharper was arrested and booked Friday and faces a Feb. 14 court appearance. LAPD says it is investigating Sharper in connection with two sexual assaults that occurred in October and earlier this month in the West Los Angeles area.

A spokeswoman for the New Orleans Police Department says it is also investigating an allegation of sexual assault filed against Sharper on Sept. 24.

Sharper, 38, played 14 seasons in the NFL (1997-2010), mostly with Green Bay. He also played with Minnesota and New Orleans and retired after the 2010 season.

He has been working as an analyst for the NFL Network, but has been suspended without pay.

I think the SA should clarify: what is a star? I thought it was something up in the sky. Just because a person played for a professional team makes him/her a star? I see some gals working the streets in Waikiki and they think they are stars--for a price!!
