      Pin It

      Even though he’s being held in California, retired NFL star Darren Sharper was denied bail Thursday by a judge in Phoenix, Arizona, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Attorney’s office said.

      Sharper, a five-time Pro Bowl player, faces five counts of drugging and raping three women in Scottsdale, Ariz., in November.

      Sharper has been in jail in Los Angeles since February 27 facing similar charges. Thursday’s ruling in Arizona makes it more likely that Sharper will be denied bail in the California case as well.
