Former Buffalo Bill arrested for brandishing a sword at a youth basketball event

Former Buffalo Bill returner/running back Charlie Rogers was arrested for brandishing a sword at a youth basketball event

Charlie Rogers, a former Buffalo Bills player and local football star, was arrested by the Aberdeen Police Department on Monday for brandishing a sword and making terroristic threats at a youth basketball event, six weeks after leaving a voicemail threatening a youth football player.

Ex Buffalo Bill Rogers brandished the sword during an Oct. 5 incident at the Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School, during an event for parents of a local youth basketball travel team, per USA Today.

It’s just the latest incident involving Rogers, 42, who played five seasons in the National Football League with the Seattle Seahawks, Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills, after starring at Georgia Tech.

Just 11 weeks earlier Rogers, who at the time was coaching with Matawan American Youth Football, left a profanity-laden voicemail for the parent of an 11-year-old player on another team, threatening to send his players after the child until he came out of an upcoming game.
