Police: NFL Star Caught Masturbating in Car Before Pot Arrest
New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow may have been caught masturbating in his car last November when he was arrested for possessing synthetic marijuana.
According to court documents, police "were called to the scene because a woman thought she saw him masturbating in his vehicle in the parking lot" of a Target store in East Hanover, New Jersey.
The report states:
As she exited her vehicle, she commented to the male regarding how cold it was. As she stood near the open driver side window of the Escalade, she observed the males [sic] erect penis. She stated that she believed he was masturbating. [The woman] provided a written statement regarding her account.
By the time police arrived, an officer found Winslow allegedly "slouched in his seat and moving around." Winslow sprang to an upright position when the officer arrived. When the cop asked Winslow what he was doing, Winslow allegedly said he was looking for Boston Market but was lost.
The cop also noticed "two open containers of Vaseline on his center console" and plastic bags marked "Mr. Happy." There were also empty containers of "Funky Monkey" in the car.
After telling the police that he smoked the "Mr. Happy" and "Funky Monkey" at home, police let him go. But after lab tests that "came back on Dec. 23 revealed Winslow was in possession of synthetic marijuana," he was "was formally charged on Dec. 30, and last week he pleaded not guilty before a judge in Superior Court in Morristown," according to an NJ.com report.
Though lewdness was one of the alleged crimes, Winslow was not charged with lewd conduct.
Winslow, who went to school at Miami, is a 10-year veteran who is scheduled to be a free agent after playing for the Jets this season.
