Former NFL safety Darren Sharper has been charged with two more counts of sexual assault and three more counts of administering dangerous drugs, this time in Arizona, where he allegedly raped two women in November.

Detectives from Tempe served Sharper’s attorney with a grand jury indictment on those charges Wednesday morning, making Arizona the second state to file formal sexual assault charges against Sharper, 38.

“I talked to Darren, and he vigorously denies the allegations,” Sharper’s Arizona attorney, Skip Donau, told USA TODAY Sports. “We’re going to contest them vigorously, and we expect at the end of the process he’ll be vindicated.”

He also noted that Sharper had a prior relationship with one of the alleged victims in Arizona.
