Shannon Sharpe steps aside from CBS for now

Details of a temporary protective order against former NFL tight end and CBS commentator Shannon Sharpe were released today by Sports by Brooks.

Michele Bundy accuses Sharpe of forcing her to have sex with him, making multiple threats on her life and stalking her. Sharpe was ordered by the Court to not contact Bundy or her immediate family and remain at least 200 yards away from her at all times.

Sharpe released this statement through CBS: “I have decided to step aside from the NFL Today until this matter is resolved.”

CBS Sports Senior Vice President of Communications LeslieAnne Wade said on behalf of the network: “We accept Shannon’s decision and decline to comment further on a pending legal matter.”

Though it’s important to keep in mind that Sharpe has not been charged with a crime or arrested, based on the gravity of the allegations against him, CBS and Sharpe did the right thing in allowing the legal process to run its course.
