Detroit Lions’ draft bust Charles Rogers is in trouble with the law again.
He’s facing multiple unrelated charges, according to MLive.com, and has yet to turn himself in on two warrants seeking his arrest.
Rogers is charged with five misdemeanors, including conspiring with his uncle Ronie Rogers, 51, to make a threatening phone call to Charles Rogers’ mother, Cathy Rogers. Ronie Rogers faces similar charges in that case from March 5 and March 6.
Rogers has also been charged with possessing marijuana, possessing an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle and operating a motor vehicle on a suspended or revoked license from a Dec. 2 traffic stop.
This is the third alcohol-related incident for Rogers, who previously pleaded guilty to driving a motor vehicle while visibly impaired after he was discovered pass out in his car. He was also sentenced to 93 days in jail for contempt of court after passing out in a restaurant, according to the report.
We’ll see where these latest incidents lead Rogers. He’s seemingly been in trouble since his career fizzled out.
