According to a Michigan State police report, former Michigan State and Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers threatened to kills his mother if she did not pay back the $100,000 she owed him.
The reports states what Rogers, 30 and his uncle Ronie Rogers, 51, did to face misdemeanor charges of making a malicious phone call to Cathy Rogers and conspiring to commit that crime March 5 and March 6. Rogers, who surrendered to police last week, had been wanted by police for some time.
According to MLive.com,
The police report states that Cathy Rogers called police to report threatening phone calls from Charles Rogers, Ronie Rogers, and Ronie and Cathy’s sister, Debbie Rogers. Cathy Rogers told the trooper that she was informed that Charles Rogers was in danger of losing his house and that after speaking to the individual who informed her of her son’s troubles and telling him to call her son, she called her son herself and left him a voicemail message to determine whether the man called him.
[I]n 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.
Trooper Jennifer Coulter wrote in her report that Rogers then left multiple voicemail messages on her office phone, indicating that he wanted his mother to return $100,000.
Ronie Rogers told The Saginaw News that he believed Cathy Rogers “edited” the voicemail messages together so they were combined to mean something else and Charles’ words were taken out of context.
Charles Rogers is charged with possessing marijuana, possessing an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle, and operating a motor vehicle on a suspended or revoked license. If convicted of the marijuana charge, Rogers would face up to a year in jail.
The story of Charles Rogers is becoming more and more messed up by the month. While you can’t believe everything you read in a police report since it’s one side of the story, that’d be one heck of a splice job to put together multiple messages to say “blow your mouth out.” Rogers needs some serious punishment here and then when he’s done serving his time, he needs to get the heck out of Saginaw.
