Former Bucs and Miami Hurricanes tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. is in hot water again, this time in part for lewd acts he allegedly performed in a hot tub.
Winslow was jailed without bail Monday in California after being charged with lewd conduct in front of a 77-year-old woman last month in a gym, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
The son of former San Diego Chargers Hall-of-Fame tight end Kellen Winslow is accused of touching himself and asking the woman if she liked it while exercising near her, the story reports. Little more than a week later, Winslow allegedly got into a hot tub wearing only a towel and engaged in lewd conduct toward the same woman.
Winslow was charged with two counts of lewd conduct and one count each of battery of an elder and willful cruelty to an elder, all misdemeanors. He pleaded not guilty.
He was out on bail at the time, facing previous charges of kidnapping and rape for which he could face a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted.
The sixth overall pick in the 2004 draft out of Miami, Winslow played five of his 10 NFL seasons with the Cleveland Browns. (A torn ACL resulting from a motorcycle accident shelved him for the 2005 season).
Acquired by the Bucs in a 2009 trade, he spent three seasons in Tampa Bay — leading the Bucs in receptions in 2009, ’10 and ’11 — before being traded to the Seattle Seahawks. He finished his career with the New England Patriots and New York Jets.
