Serious allegations of off-field misconduct are swirling around defensive tackle Shaun Rogers, perhaps the Lions' best player. But although police have filed an arrest warrant, prosecutors have not filed any charges.

Serious allegations of off-field misconduct are swirling around defensive tackle Shaun Rogers, perhaps the Lions' best player. But although police have filed an arrest warrant, prosecutors have not filed any charges.

Rogers allegedly groped a dancer at a Detroit strip club with a gun in his waistband at 1:15 a.m. June 8.

The woman gave this account in a police report: She was in her dressing room wrapped in a towel when Rogers walked in and forcibly groped her with a gun in his waistband. Rogers asked her if she knew who he was, made lewd comments and dragged her by the arm into a hallway, where a second man propositioned her profanely.

Rogers said: "You can probably have her for $100." The woman called for help, only to be told Rogers was intoxicated and not to worry about it.

Rogers could not be reached for comment. His agent, Kennard McGuire, did not respond to messages.

"We have a case with very serious allegations, and it is important that we take the time needed to make a fair assessment of the facts and evidence before a decision is made," Maria Miller, spokeswoman for the Wayne County prosecutor's office, said in a statement.

The woman, 20, said she didn't want to say anything until the prosecutors reached a decision.

A Lions spokesman said the team was collecting information and had no further comment.
