Former Rams place kicker Tony Zendejas was charged with a felony count of rape by use of drugs, rape of an unconscious person, sodomy by anesthesia and sodomy of an unconscious victim, according to the Los Angeles County DA in a press release issued this morning.

Zendejas, 48,  owns Zendejas restaurant in San Dimas. The press release indicates the victim was drugged and raped in Pomona.  

*Zendejas retired in 1995 after playing 10 seasons with the Los Angeles Rams, the Houston Oilers, Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers. He was arrested Thursday morning at his home in Yorba Linda.

*The complaint also alleges Zendejas caused great bodily injury.

*If convicted he faces up to 15 years in state prison. Arraignment is scheduled for Friday in Pomona Superior Court.

** Here’s some data on Zendejas:

** Wikipedia entry on the kicker

** Zendejas Mexican Restaurant

** NFL statistics

**Zendejas MySpace page

*** Zendejas criminal record includes a couple of minor traffic violations in Orange County, according to public records.

****Officials said their investigation into the rape allegations lasted seven months; thus the delay between the event and Zendejas’ arrest Thursday morning.

TMZ posted a brief on this story based on the original press release. They haven’t updated but here’s a link
