The petition, filed by Michele Bundy, is classified as “Family Violence” and is currently listed as “filed.”

I talked to a Fulton County Sheriff spokeswoman Friday afternoon and she confirmed that the temporary restraining order against Sharpe had been granted by a judge but that Sharpe has not been charged with a crime or arrested. There is also no court hearing scheduled at present.

No more information on the case was immediately available as offices of Fulton County Superior Court are closed for the weekend.

Seven months ago, Bundy promoted a Facebook group that featured Sharpe’s recent bid for the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The group has since been deleted.

When contacted Friday evening about the temporary restraining order against Sharpe, a CBS spokesperson had no comment.

Sharpe is also currently involved in a dispute over child support with a woman named Melinda Wilson in Atlanta-area Dekalb County Superior Court. Sharpe, who is the plaintiff in the dispute, is scheduled to have his case heard against Wilson on Sept. 20 at 9 a.m. at the Dekalb County Courthouse.

In 2004, Sharpe had a misdemeanor battery charge filed against him by the mother of one of his children, Erika Evans. The charged was dropped after the dispute was resolved through mediation.

According to the Fulton County Superior Court website, since 1994 Sharpe has been cited in 10 different cases involving the court. Besides Thursday’s petition filed and granted by Bundy, all of the previous cases were civil issues between Sharpe and a former partners.
