Former NFL player arrested for third naked burglary

Nearly 10 years after his career in the NFL came to an end, Stanley Wilson is still making headlines. However, his recent publicity is likely not anything the former Detroit Lions cornerback wanted to get noticed for.

Wilson was recently arrested in a small town located in the state of Oregon after he tried to force his way into a stranger’s house. When police arrived to the residence, they discovered something missing from Wilson’s body – his clothes.

The former cornerback was arrested and taken to Marion County Jail in his birthday suit. Oddly enough, this was not the first time in Wilson’s life that he had been arrested without the presence of any clothing on his body.

Actually, this is not the first time this has happened in the last year.

Back in January, Police gifted Wilson with a pair of his own shiny silver bracelets after he tried to get inside a random person’s home in Portland, Oregon and once again, tried to do so wearing absolutely nothing. This arrest came just eight months after he was arrested in the buff last June for also trying to break into a stranger’s house in Portland.

His first undraped arrest in June actually resulted in Wilson getting shot in the abdomen by the owner of the home he was trying to get into. Who could believe that someone felt threatened by an unknown naked man trying to force his way into their home? Go figure.

The cause behind Wilson’s inconceivable string of crimes seems to likely have some relation to the methamphetamine he tested positive for last November. Surprisingly, getting arrested with no clothes on seems more likely for a person who has been dabbling into a bit of drugs than a person who is completely sober. Though his behavior has been…egregious, he’s certainly not the first pro athlete to do something crazy on drugs. These guys were way worse:

After spending four seasons of college football at Stanford University, Wilson was selected by the Lions in the third round of the 2005 NFL Draft. The cornerback’s career in Detroit only managed to last until 2007 before he was out of the league.

While fully clothed, Wilson compiled a total of 86 tackles in 32 games for the Lions. The cornerback is the son of former Cincinnati Bengals fullback Stanley Wilson Sr., who famously had a problem with cocaine during his time in the NFL.
