A judge has jailed ex-Detroit Lions top draft pick Charles Rogers for violating probation in a domestic violence case.

Court records show the 27-year-old ex-Michigan State star receiver falsified records saying he attended Alcoholic Anonymous meetings and tested positive for alcohol.

Novi District Judge Brian MacKenzie granted Rogers' request Tuesday to leave a diversion program and serve 30 days in the Oakland County jail, with credit for 15 days served.

Rogers was the NFL's second overall pick in 2003. The Lions signed him to a six-year, $55 million deal, but injuries sidelined him most of his first two seasons. He was cut in 2006.

Rogers was charged in September with assaulting his fiancee and pleaded guilty to trespassing. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
