Last Thursday in San Diego, California, ex-Jet tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. was arrested on suspicion of burglary at a mobile-home park, reports NBC San Diego's Rafael Avitabile.
A burglary call was made at around 2:30 p.m. by a neighbor in the Park Encinitas Mobile Home Park.
According to Winslow's publicist, Denise White, "An over-reactive neighbor called police after she saw Kellen walking around a mobile home." Winslow was later arrested and charged with first-degree burglary as well as being held on $50,000 bail.
The entire incident was reportedly a misunderstanding, as Winslow was apparently house hunting for his mother-in-law when the burglary call was made, per The Post's Jake Nisse. White later explained that the house belonged to a friend of Winslow's wife.
The former Pro Bowler was then released from his five-hour stay in the North County jail after posting bail. Winslow's attorney, Harvey A. Steinberg, released a statement saying, "Mr. Winslow emphatically denies committing any burglary. He would have no need to burglarize or steal anything from anyone at the trailer park."
During the final season of his NFL career, Winslow played in 12 games with the Jets. He recorded 31 receptions for 388 yards and two touchdowns.
