According to the Detroit News, they received a phone call from a reliable source at the Detroit Police Department. Shaun Rogers was interviewed Saturday at Ford Field for an incident in a strip club where he was reportedly carrying a gun and touched a stripper in a club called The Players Den on Detroit’s west side.
A warrant to the Wayne County Prosecutors Office will be submitted later today. If his (the source) story is true then it appears as if Lions defensive tackle Shaun Rogers is in deep trouble and it is all going to come out later today.
The source states that he never pulled his gun but he let it be known he was packing some heat. He had been drinking and acted like he owned the place, witnesses said. All of this happened Friday night and early Saturday morning, just a few hours after Rogers and the Lions practiced in front of high school players on Detroit’s west side.
This is very disturbing because the Lions have been telling everybody that Rogers has changed and that he was going to be a more dominate player and more responsible. But here is the stunner. The rumor is that Rogers and his attorney are going to pay off the stripper to silence her. The question is this – she did file a statement but will she stick with it?
And again, if these allegations as reported by the Detroit News are true, then Rogers’ career with the Lions could be over (and a possible suspension) and he could even spend time in jail. Hopefully there will be more details forthcoming later today. Stay tuned.
