Pomona Superior Court officials say Zendejas was arraigned Monday on one count each of rape by use of drugs, rape of an unconscious person, sodomy by anesthesia or controlled substance and sodomy of an unconscious person.
Prosecutors allege that on Jan. 26 Zendejas gave a woman at his San Dimas restaurant a drink that made her groggy. She told authorities she woke up in a motel and had been raped.
Zendejas is free on bail. If convicted, he faces up to 15 years in prison.
Zendejas played with the Los Angeles Rams, Houston Oilers, Atlanta Falcons and San Francisco 49ers. He retired in 1995.
