Charles Rogers Continues His Fall

Troubled former Detroit Lion Charles Rogers was sentenced to 93 days in jail this morning for violating terms of probation in his ongoing battle with substance abuse.

Novi Deputy Police Chief Tom Lindberg said this morning that Rogers was found slumped over at a table Tuesday afternoon at On the Border restaurant in Novi, and employees who couldn’t wake him called 911. Police and emergency medical personnel were sent to the restaurant on Haggerty Road.

“He was showing signs of intoxication and was uncooperative, and at that point our officers determined that he had a warrant out for his arrest,” Lindberg said.
