Last Saturday, a report surfaced of former NFL safety Darren Sharper being arrested in California on charges of suspicion of rape. Later that same day, the New Orleans Police Department issued a statement acknowledging that a sexual assault complaint had been made last year against Sharper in Louisiana.
Per Naomi Martin of the New Orleans Times-Picayune, police will release on Friday the report generated in connection with the September 24, 2013 incident. Sharper, who played for the Saints, Vikings, and Packers, has not been arrested or charged in Louisiana.
The release will be coming in response to a formal request made by the Times-Picayune on January 18.
On Saturday, Sharper quickly was suspended indefinitely and without pay by his current employer, NFL Network.
