Former Lions WR Charles Rogers Headed to Jail

There was a bench warrant for Rogers arrest after he couldn’t get a ride to court (that was his excuse).

That warrant has been executed and he is heading off to jail.

Rogers, who had a bench warrant issued for his arrest last week after he failed to show up to a court hearing, is now in jail and will be sent to a treatment facility, ABC 12 in Saginaw, Michigan, reports.

Rogers failed a drug test before a previous court hearing, and he has a long history of failing drug tests, going all the way back to the 2003 Scouting Combine, when he submitted a diluted urine sample.

The charges Rogers currently faces include making a malicious phone call (a death threat to his own mother) and conspiring with his uncle to commit that crime, plus possessing marijuana, possessing an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle on a suspended or revoked license.

Hopefully he can clean himself up, but history shows that is unlikely to happen.
