SAN DIEGO, Dec. 1 (UPI) -- A woman who had an affair with former San Diego Chargers wide receiver Chris Chambers is charged with stalking his wife and family, prosecutors say.

The San Diego District Attorney's Office says Stacey Bernice Saunders, 27, of San Diego faces 11 misdemeanor counts for abusive phone calls, text messages and e-mails, the San Diego Union-Tribune reports. Paul Levikow, a spokesman for the district attorney, said Saunders is scheduled to appear in court Jan. 19.

Chambers sought a temporary restraining order in June, accusing Saunders of "abusive, vulgar and irrational" calls and messages to him, his wife and her mother and sister. The order was not granted because Chambers, who has admitted to having an affair with Saunders, did not appear in court, the newspaper said.

Soon after, Chambers and his wife filed for divorce, citing "irreconcilable differences."

Chambers joined the Chargers in 2007 in a mid-season trade after playing with the Miami Dolphins for more than five years. The Chargers released him Nov. 2 and he is now with the Kansas City Chiefs.
