The Baltimore Ravens’ security director, Darren Sanders, was charged with a fourth-degree sexual offense Tuesday night involving a Dec. 14 incident, the New York Post reports.

The 48-year-old is scheduled for a hearing in early February, but there were no more details given on the charge, the Post notes. Other sources have also been tightlipped, with a spokesman for the Baltimore City State’s Attorney’s Office declining to comment on the active case. The Baltimore Police Department also did not respond to the Post’s requests for comment.


The team did release a statement via spokesman Kevin Byrne, who said, “We are aware of the situation and have been investigating thoroughly.”

Sanders’ lawyer has defended him in the Baltimore Sun, insisting that the charges, whatever the details, were “totally fabricated, made up.”

Sanders is known to be the person who helped launch the team’s investigation into Ray Rice’s notorious domestic violence case.
