CBSSports Former NFL player Kellen Winslow II was charged with one count of residential burglary on Thursday after an incident at a mobile home park just north of San Diego. According to the police report, officers were called to the mobile home park around 2:30 p.m. on Thursday after a witness noticed a black male walk into a trailer home that didn’t belong to him. The mobile home park serves mostly seniors, which is why the neighbor became suspicious. After being confronted by the neighbor, the black male, who was later identified as Winslow, got into his SUV and left the scene. According to ABC in San Diego, the woman who contacted police became suspicious of Winslow for multiple reasons. Apparently, Winslow was shirtless and told the neighbor he was looking for his big, red dog named Clifford, after the neighbor asked him what was he was doing. “I confronted him and said ‘Hi, can I help you with anything’,” the woman said of her encounter with Winslow. “He said, ‘Nope, just looking for my dog.’ I go, ‘What dog?’ and he said, ‘Well, it’s a red dog, Clifford.’ and I went, ‘There’s no dog here.’ I said, I’m not comfortable with this, you need to leave. And he just stood there and he went, ‘Alright then.'” The witness also noted that there was a elderly woman in the mobile home that Winslow entered. However, the woman in the mobile home, who didn’t know Winslow, apparently didn’t even realize that he was there. Police eventually tracked Winslow down and arrested him. According to NBC San Diego, Winslow spent roughly five hours in jail before he was able to post his $50,000 bond. The one felony count of first-degree burglary is punishable by up to six years in prison.
The bizarre story of former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow Jr continues, as he was arrested for burglary in Southern California, after he was caught trying to enter the mobile home of an elderly woman. When Winslow was confronted by the elderly woman’s neighbors, Winslow told the neighbors that he was just looking for his dog, and when neighbors asked about the dog Winslow remarked that it was a “big red dog named Clifford.” Every kid in America read “Clifford The Big Ted Dog” growing up, and knows Winslow was making a joke, as an excuse as to why he was attempting to enter an old lady’s mobile home. Winslow now faces a felony count of first-degree burglary and could end up doing as much as six years of hard time for this crime. Everyone remembers Kellen Winslow’s “I’m a soldier!” interview and apparently even soldiers read Clifford The Big Red Dog.
