A former Green Bay Packers Pro Bowl safety who won a Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault.

WWL-TV in New Orleans cites the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office saying that Darren Sharper was arrested Friday.

TMZ says that Sharper was under suspicion after reports of sexual assaults in October 2013 and January 2014.

Sharper was  a two-time first-team All-Pro and five-time Pro Bowler who played with Green Bay from 1997-2004.  He also played with the Minnesota Vikings.
