Former Lions cornerback Stanley Wilson II was arrested while naked Saturday for the third time in less than a year. The son of an NFL player of the same name who himself had off-field issues, Wilson is reportedly facing multiple charges for his latest incident.
Wilson, a California native who played at Stanford, was arrested in Woodburn, Ore., after a call was placed to police at 2:09 p.m. The caller said (via the Oregonian) that Wilson, 34, was making “alarming statements” to a homeowner after driving up and approaching the homeowner while the latter stood in his garage.
According to police, the homeowner said Wilson was “acting erratically,” so he closed his garage door and contacted authorities. Wilson then allegedly tried to get in through the front and rear doors, but was unable to do so.
Police said that when they arrived, Wilson emerged from a backyard shed with no clothing on. They said that he behaved cooperatively while being taken into custody.
In June, Wilson was arrested after allegedly trying to break into a house in Portland, Ore. He was shot in the abdomen by the homeowner in that incident, and police found him naked in a water fountain in the backyard. Police accused him of trying to burglarize another house in that area on the same day, as well as spitting on an officer, and Wilson was charged with first-degree burglary, attempted first-degree burglary, second-degree criminal trespass, second-degree disorderly conduct and aggravated harassment. He was given a deferred jail sentence earlier this month.
In January, police found Wilson naked while outside a stranger’s home in Portland. They said he was “running around” and appeared high, but no new charges were brought. Wilson’s mug shot after that arrest showed him in a state of great distress.
Wilson was more composed in his mug shot from Saturday’s episode, but it seems clear that he is need of help. He was ordered to undergo drug counseling in January after failing a test for methamphetamine the previous month.
