RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

Former Hermitage High School, William & Mary and New Orleans Saints star Darren Sharper was charged Friday with drugging and raping two women, the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office announced. 

Los Angeles prosecutors say Sharper faces used zolpidem, or Ambien, and morphine to rape the women. The alleged sexual assaults took place in West Los Angeles in October and January. However, prosecutors asked a judge to raise his bond saying he is also suspected of raping women in Arizona, Nevada and Louisiana.

Sharper was arrested last month, but posted $200,000 bail. Prosecutors want the judge to raise his bond to $10 million.

Sharper now lives in Miami Beach, but graduated from Hermitage High School in Richmond in 1993. He played defensive back and William & Mary where he was an All-American twice. 

According to the motion filed Friday to increase his bail, prosecutors said Sharper met two women at a West Hollywood nightclub on Oct. 30 and brought them back to his hotel room where he gave them each a shot and they passed out, reports WVUE.

Victim one allegedly woke up naked hours later with Sharper sexually assaulting her. The second woman allegedly awoke and "interrupted his actions," the motion states.

Sharper is also accused of meeting two women at the same club on Jan. 14. He allegedly brought them back to his hotel, invited both up to his room, offered them a shot, and each passed out.
