TMZ.com is reporting that former NFL kicker Tony Zendejas is in jail on rape charges.

According to the report, prosecutors say that in January, Zendejas gave a woman a drink at the bar he owns, and that the drink made her groggy. Prosecutors say the victim woke up at a motel down the street and called the police, saying she had been raped.

Zendejas was arrested this morning and is still in jail. His bail has been set at $260,000. If convicted of felony rape, Zendejas faces up to 15 years in prison.

Zendejas started his pro kicking career with the Los Angeles Express of the USFL, and he then played for the Houston Oilers, Los Angeles Rams, Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers.
