Sharper is being investigated in N.O. after a woman filed a police report back in September claiming Darren picked her up at a bar (after she consumed a “large amount” of alcohol) and had sex with her against her will.
Now, Sharper’s legal team tells TMZ Sports … “There were numerous witnesses who observed the [accuser] on her own and also observed her after encountering Sharper.”
Team Sharper says … the witnesses say the accuser was “following him willingly throughout the evening” and claims surveillance footage syncs up with the witness accounts.
Sharper’s lawyers say the video has been turned over to investigators.
“No evidence suggests or implies that a sexual assault occurred,” Sharper’s lawyer says.
