Former first-round pick and Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers has dealt with tough times since he's been out of football, dealing with alcohol related incidents, marijuana possession, and even being ordered to pay back a little over $6 million to the Detroit Lions franchise. Not much compares to Rogers latest incident with the law, however.
Rogers surrendered himself to authorities last week and has pleaded not guilty on charges for allegedly threatening to kill his own mother if she didn't pay him back $100,000.
The Sagniaw News obtained a copy of the police report and notes that a message Rogers left seems to indicate he was threatening his own mother.
The police report states that in a voicemail to his mother, Charles Rogers threatened to "blow her mouth out" and said that he was willing to do "the time" he would face as a result. The trooper wrote that she listened to the voicemail messages and that Charles Rogers identified himself.
Rogers was reportedly in financial trouble and could potentially lose his house, demanding money back from his mother.
