For the fourth time in 18 months a judge has issued a warrant for the arrest of Charles Rogers the former Saginaw High School star athlete and former Detroit Lions wide receiver who went to a drug and alcohol treatment facility late last year.

Saginaw County District Judge A.T. Frank on Tuesday Sept. 10 issued a bench warrant for Rogers' arrest after Rogers who faces five misdemeanors from two unrelated incidents failed to appear for a pre-trial hearing.

Rogers in December entered drug and alcohol treatment through the National Football League Players Association first at the University of Michigan and then a facility in Houston. He subsequently went to North Carolina to continue his rehabilitation and had remained there until sometime this summer when authorities believe he came to Bay City.

Frank on Tuesday said both Saginaw County officials as well as NLFPA officials are attempting to locate Rogers but those attempts have proven unsuccessful. Rogers had numerous trial dates rescheduled throughout the year when he was in North Carolina but after the judge learned of Rogers' apparent current whereabouts he issued the warrant for Rogers' arrest.

It's not clear if Rogers was served notice that he was to appear for Tuesday's hearing.

Rogers 32 was a three-sport star at Saginaw High who excelled as a wide receiver at Michigan State University and was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft. His once-promising career was cut short after three seasons by injuries and subsequent marijuana use.

A judge in March 2012 issued a two-misdemeanor warrant for Rogers' arrest based on allegations that he threatened his mother on voicemail messages claiming he would “blow her mouth out” if she didn't return $100000 that he claimed belonged to him. A three-misdemeanor warrant was issued in connection with a Dec. 2 2011 traffic stop at South Fayette and Dearborn in Saginaw in which police said Rogers was in possession of marijuana and an open container of alcohol.

Rogers ultimately surrendered to authorities on those warrants and appeared late for multiple court dates. In June Rogers failed to appear altogether and Frank issued a warrant for his arrest.
