NEW ORLEANS, (WGNO) – Ex-Saints player Darren Sharper will remain in a Los Angeles jail without bail pending the receipt of charges from New Orleans.

The ruling came down Monday in California.  An arraignment has been set for Friday.

Sharper, 38, turned himself in to police last week after an arrest warrant was issued for aggravated rape of two women in an alleged incident in New Orleans in September 2013.

Sharper had been staying in Los Angeles under a severe set of restrictions set by a judge after he was indicted there on two counts of rape and additional counts of drugging the victims and others.

On Saturday, Sharper, who had been suspended from his job as an analyst for the NFL Network, was fired.
