    Rogers investigated in sex crime accusation

    June 11, 2007



    Detroit Lions defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is being investigated for allegedly groping a woman in her dressing room at a Detroit strip club, officials said today.

    Maria Miller, a spokeswoman for the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, said her office received a request for an arrest warrant from Detroit police today. No charges have been issued.

    “We will proceed as usual, interviewing the alleged victim and any other potential witnesses,” Miller said. “We don’t anticipate that we will have a decision today.”

    Miller said the warrant request accuses Rogers, 28, of criminal sexual conduct, but she declined to elaborate. Depending on the degree, that charge can cover a wide range of sex crimes, from groping to rape.

    The woman told police that Rogers walked into her dressing room and forcibly groped her, authorities said.

    The incident reportedly occurred at 1:15 a.m. Friday at a club on Joy Road on the city’s west side.

    "We are gathering information," Lions Vice President Bill Keenist said in an e-mail. "We'll have no further comment at this time."

    A message seeking comment has been left with Rogers' agent, Kennard McGuire.

    The Lions drafted Rogers of Houston in 2001 and is considered to be one of the team's best players. He has twice been named to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, most recently after the 2005 season after recording a career and season high of 5 1/2 sacks.

    They've been told they were special from a very young age. Leads to a massive sense of entitlement.

    damnit what the hell is wrong with this team!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Everything was goin' pretty good during the off season and then this happens. Out of all the players, it has to happen to our best defensive player. And and you know Goodell is gonna' take him down. God I hate being a Lions fan.

    and this is so surprising because Shaun Rogers is the type player who puts others well before himself...

    You should be used to it by now.

    The Lions are to me what the Cubs are to Armchair QB. I hate this fucking team. :D

    (Oh and Chuck, Rogers ain't the best defensive player anymore. Hasn't been for about two years now. I'd have to choose Ernie Sims (which probably means he'll get lost in an African safari tomorrow).
