Lawyers for former NFL All-Pro safety Darren Sharper are questioning the evidence authorities are using to justify keeping him in jail without bail on charges that he drugged and sexually assaulted two women. It's the latest development in several ongoing sexual assault investigations involving Sharper in Louisiana, California, Florida, Arizona and Nevada. Bail in Sharper's California rape case was set at $1 million, but he was indicted in Arizona last month on charges of sexual assault and administering dangerous drugs, so authorities in California have kept him jailed.

Kansas City Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe has pleaded guilty to amended charges of defective equipment and littering in connection with his November arrest for possessing marijuana. City prosecutor Amy Ashefford says Bowe's amended charges are no different from what others get when charged with speeding and possessing pot for the first time. Bowe's attorney, Kevin Regan, says the case is closed and there is no admission of guilt for the marijuana charge, which was dismissed. Bowe was pulled over in the Kansas City suburb on Nov. 10 for driving 48 in a 35 mph zone.
