Former NFL star Darren Sharper has once again been arrested on charges of rape.

According to NBC News, Sharper surrendered to police in Los Angeles late Thursday night after a warrant was issued for his arrest in New Orleans earlier in the day. Sharper, already out on bail after being arrested in connection to a pair of rapes in Los Angeles in January, is facing two more charges of aggravated rape in New Orleans.

He is also still under investigation on allegations of rape in Las Vegas, Miami and Tempe, Ariz.

Per the report, a conviction on an aggravated rape charge in Louisiana carries a sentence of life imprisonment at hard labor without benefit of parole, probation or suspension of sentence.

Erik Nunez, an acquaintance of Sharper, has also been charged for the crimes in Louisiana. The women involved in the case allege that Sharper and Nunez raped both of them in an apartment last September.
