Former New York Jet Released on $50k Bail in Burglary Case
Former New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was released earlier this month on $50,000 bail after being arrested for residential burglary. According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, officers were called to the Park Encinitas Mobile Home Park when a neighbor was concerned over an unusual person entering a home. The neighbor called police because of the suspicious behavior, particularly that a man he did not recognize had entered his neighbor’s home. San Diego law enforcement stopped Winslow who was driving a vehicle that matched the description given to officers. It is unclear what was allegedly taken from mobile park residence.
The former tight end faced criminal charges in 2013 for allegedly possessing marijuana. He also served a suspension for violating the NFL’s policy on PEDs. Winslow was released from the Vista Detention Facility early in the morning after posting bail and will face criminal charges for first degree burglary. In breaking news, Winslow is currently being held without bail on another set of charges out of San Diego. According to court documents, Winslow is suspected of sexual assault and burglary, facing nine felony counts. Documents allege that the former NFL player targeted elderly women. The charges include two counts of forcible rape.
