Kellen Winslow Jr. Arrested on Rape & Kidnapping Charges, Faces Life in Prison

Former NFL player Kellen Winslow Jr. has been arrested for the second time in the past seven days, and his latest arrest includes some very serious charges.

According to the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department, Winslow was arrested in San Diego Thursday afternoon (Jun. 14) on an outstanding warrant and was hit with a whopping NINE criminal charges, including kidnapping with intent to commit rape, forcible rape, forcible sodomy, burglary, indecent exposure and more. A search warrant was executed at his home, Fox 8 reported.

His total charges are as follows:

  • 2 counts of residential burglary
  • 2 counts of kidnapping with intent to commit rape
  • 2 counts of forcible rape
  • 1 count of forcible sodomy
  • 1 count of forcible oral copulation
  • 1 count of indecent exposure

If Winslow ends up being convicted of all charges, he faces up to life in prison.

Last Friday (Jun. 8), Winslow was arrested and charged with first-degree burglary for an alleged incident that reportedly happened at a mobile home park in Encinitas, California.

Winslow said at the time that he was not burglarizing the home in question; he was “house hunting for a home for his mother-in-law,” according to Fox 8. He was held on $50,000 bond, which he posted. He’ll be formally charged during an arraignment on Friday (Jun. 15).

34-year-old Kellen Winslow Jr. played in the NFL between 2004 and 2013. He earned more than $30 million during his 10-year NFL career as a tight end for the Cleveland Browns, the Tamba Bay Bucs, the New England Patriots and the NY Jets.

This isn’t Winslow’s first run-in with the law. He was arrested back in 2013 for allegedly masturbating in a Target parking lot after cops say they found vaseline and synthetic marijuana in his car.

Winslow denied the masturbation allegations (he said he was changing his clothes), but he was hit with a third-degree charge of possession of a controlled substance. He later struck a plea deal and got the drug charge dropped.
