NEW ORLEANS -- Darren Sharper, the former New Orleans Saints safety and NFL Network analyst,  surrendered to police in Los Angeles after arrest warrants were issued for him regarding a Sept. 2013 incident in New Orleans Thursday.

The NOPD said it would seek to extradite Sharper to New Orleans as early as next Wednesday.

The New Orleans Police Department issued an arrest warrant Thursday for Sharper and an acquaintance -- 26-year-old Erik Nunez -- on two counts of aggravated rape in connection with an incident in September 2013.

Nunez turned himself in to police in New Orleans Friday morning.

Sharper is now under investigation for a total of eight alleged rapes and 11 druggings in four states.

Last week, Sharper pleaded not guilty to rape and drugging allegations in California. A judge posted his bond at $1 million.

If convicted of aggravated rape, Sharper would be sentenced to life in prison at hard labor and wouldn't be eligible for parole, probation or suspension of sentence.
