Former Lion Charles Rogers In Trouble With Law Yet Again

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers is in trouble yet again. Rogers was arraigned on Thursday after turning himself in on two arrest warrants. The charges stemmed from two separate incidents. MLive has the details:

Rogers is charged with making a malicious phone call and conspiring to commit that crime March 5 and March 6 at 3332 Williamson in Bridgeport Township and with possessing marijuana, possessing an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle on a suspended or revoked license Dec. 2 at South Fayette and Dearborn in Saginaw.

As if that doesn't sound bad enough, the conspiring to commit a crime charge involved his uncle and mother. Rogers allegedly conspired with his uncle "to make a threatening phone call" to his mother. I'm not even sure what that means, but Rogers pleaded not guilty to the charges related to that incident, as well as the incident in December.

It's fitting that news about Rogers being in trouble again came out this week. Guys like Mikel Leshoure and Nick Fairley should take this as a lesson of what not to become. Obviously there's a big difference between getting caught with weed and having your career collapse like with Rogers, but Rogers is the perfect example of somebody who never got the message that he needed to stay out of trouble.
