Arrest Warrant Issued For Former Lion, Spartan Charles Rogers

SAGINAW, Mich. (WWJ/AP)  – There’s more trouble brewing for the former Detroit Lions and Michigan State University WR Charles Rogers, as a judge has issued an arrest warrant after he failed to appear for a court date.

Saginaw District Judge A.T. Frank issued the bench warrant earlier this week — the fourth time in 18 months that there has been a warrant for Rogers’ arrest.

The 32-year-old faces five misdemeanors from two separate incidents. In once case, he’s charged with malicious use of a telephone. A second case involves possession of marijuana, open intoxicants and driving on a suspended license charges.

Rogers faces a jury trial set for Sept. 24 in Saginaw District Court.

Rogers was drafted by the Detroit Lions second overall in the 2003 NFL Draft. He caught 36 passes for 440 yards and 4 touchdowns in his 2 year career.

A message seeking comment was left for Rogers’ attorney, George Bush.
