Police allege that Charles Rogers, the former No. 1 overall draft pick by the Detroit Lions, threatened to kill his mother if she did not re-pay him a loan of $100,000.

According to, Michigan State Police Rogers, 30, and his uncle Ronie Rogers conspired to threaten Cathy Rogers on March 5 and March 6. Charles Rogers has been charged with making a malicious phone call and conspiring to commit a crime.

Rogers surrendered to authorities last week and faces a total of five misdemeanor charges, including unrelated alleged crimes.

In the report, police allege Charles Rogers threatened his mother by saying he would “blow her mouth out” and that he was willing to do “the time” for the crime if he did not get his money back.

It’s a complicated mess for Charles Rogers, who has encountered serious financial trouble and was ordered to re-pay the Lions $6.1 million for defaulting on his contract.
