Shannon Sharpe: Michele Bundy takes out restraining order, sets off chain reaction

shannon-sharpe.jpgLast Thursday (Sept. 9), a woman named Michele Bundy was granted a temporary restraining order in Atlanta against fomer football player and current CBS' NFL analyst Shannon Sharpe. She accuses him of forcing her to have sex with him and threatening her life.

Despite Thursday's ruling, Sharpe was back on his pregame job Sunday with CBS but on Wednesday he announced that he would be taking some time off.

"I have decided to step aside from the NFL Today until this matter is resolved," Sharpe says in a statement. CBS Sports will only say that they "accept his decision."
