John “Charlie” Rogers Jr., 42, turned himself in to police Monday and was charged with making terroristic threats, stalking and weapons offenses. The Asbury Park Pressreported Rogers was released immediately after an initial appearance.
The incident occurred during a meeting for a youth basketball travel team at Matawan-Aberdeen Middle School on Oct. 5, officials said. The police report stated Rogers was “under the influence of drugs or alcohol during the altercation,” NJ.com reported, and investigators said Rogers threatened someone with a sword.
“We are going to blitz every [expletive] play until your guy comes out of the game,” Rogers allegedly said in the voicemail, according to the Asbury Park Press.
Rogers was fired from his job as the offensive coordinator at St. John Vianney High School after the tape was made public.
