SAGINAW, Mich. (AP) - Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Charles Rogers has been arraigned on five misdemeanors from two unrelated incidents.

The 30-year-old Rogers appeared Thursday before Saginaw County District Judge A.T. Frank and pleaded not guilty to the charges. Frank released Rogers on a $7,500 personal recognizance bond.

He's charged with making a malicious phone call and conspiring to commit that crime March 5 and March 6 in Saginaw County's Bridgeport Township. Rogers also is charged with marijuana possession, possessing an open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle and operating a motor vehicle on a suspended or revoked license Dec. 2 in Saginaw.
