Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers has a warrant out for his arrest in Michigan, according to MLive.com reporter Andy Hoag. This is the fourth time in 18 months that a judge has issued a warrant for Rogers' arrest.

Saginaw County District Judge A.T. Frank issued the warrant for Rogers who faces five misdemeanors from two unrelated incidents. He also failed to appear for a pre-trial hearing. Rogers, 32, entered rehab with help from the NFL for marijuana and alcohol abuse.

Frank said that Saginaw County officials as well as NLFPA officials are attempting to locate Rogers but have not found the former Lions receiver. Rogers was taken with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2003 NFL Draft by the Detroit Lions.
