Charles Rogers turns himself in on 2 warrants for his arrest
Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers turned himself in Thursday on two warrants seeking his arrest and after appearing in court he was released on his own recognizance.
Rogers is charged with a total of five misdemeanors from two separate incidents and could face up to a year in jail, according to MLive.com.
The 30-year-old appeared in Saginaw County District Court and pleaded not guilty to the charges. According to the report, Rogers was surprised he was not placed in custody after appearing and told the bailiff, “tell the judge I appreciate that.”
As he left with an unidentified male, Rogers said, “If I was a nobody, they would have crucified me.”
We’re not sure who Rogers is these days, but he’s certainly in a bit of trouble. He’s been charged with placing a malicious phone call to his own mother and conspiring to commit a crime. He’s also been charged with possession of marijuana, possession of an open container in a motor vehicle, driving on a suspended or revoked license.
