Yahoo Sports is reporting that Brandon Licciardi, a former sheriff’s deputy in Louisiana, who has been charged (along with Sharper) with drugging women in order to rape them, told investigators he witnessed Reggie Bush – who at the time, was Sharper’s teammate with the Saints – drop the party drug ecstasy into women’s drinks at a Las Vegas night club a few years ago. This, according to the Baton Rouge Advocate.
The Advocate, says Licciardi told authorities about seeing Bush doing this when he (Licciardi) was interviewed last year by the Orleans Parish (La.) District Attorney. At the time, Licciardi was being questioned about two incidents in which Sharper allegedly was involved in rapes.
Here’s what Licciardi said about Bush’s alleged involvement with Ecstasy or MDMA, also known as Molly:
“OK, um, I was in Vegas about three years ago and um, Reggie Bush put Molly in Champagne. He was handing out ‘Molly’ on the dance floor to girls. Handing it out. Like giving it to them,” Licciardi said.
“And how do you know that?” asked James O’Hern, an investigator for the DA’s Office.
“[Because] I saw it with my own eyes,” Licciardi responded.
Well, needless to say, this is not a good look for Reggie Bush. But keep in mind that Bush has not been charged with anything by authorities, and he strongly denied any involvement through his California-based attorney, Shawn Holley, who told the Detroit Free Press:
“This is outrageous. I can say to you on the record that Reggie adamantly, vehemently and unequivocally denies all of the statements in that article. We are demanding a retraction from The Advocate and Reggie is considering taking legal action.”
