LOS ANGELES (WTAQ) - Former Green Bay Packers' safety Darren Sharper is due in court February 14th, on suspicion of sexual assault in Los Angeles.  

Sharper, who played eight of his 14 NFL seasons in Green Bay, was booked on Friday and released on a $200,000 bond.  

L.A. Police said it's investigating Sharper's possible involvement in two sexual assaults in West Los Angeles in October and earlier this month. Also, New Orleans Police said it's investigating an alleged sexual assault by Sharper last September 24th.  

The 38-year-old Sharper was also suspended from the NFL Network, where he's been working as an analyst.  

Sharper made the Super Bowl as a Packer in his rookie season of 1997. He had 36 interceptions and five touchdowns in Green Bay.  

Sharper then moved on to Minnesota and New Orleans, where he won a Super Bowl with the Saints in the 2009 season.  

Sharper retired in 2010 with six All-Pro nominations and five Pro Bowl bids.
