Former Detroit Lions cornerback Stanley Wilson Jr. was arrested after he allegedly broke into a $30 million Hollywood mansion, raided the home, and took a bath in an outdoor fountain on August 24.

The 39-year-old’s latest break-in was allegedly his second at the same property, causing damages of at least $5,000. Wilson Jr., who is the son of former NFL running back/fullback Stanley Wilson Sr., was charged with two counts of felony vandalism and one count of second-degree burglary, TMZ Sports reported.

In 2016, Wilson Jr. attempted to break into another home in Portland while he was naked and was shot in the stomach. Just months later, the ex-NFLer was arrested for taking a nude stroll around a Portland neighborhood. Then, in February of 2017, Wilson Jr. was again busted for breaking into another home in his birthday suit. As part of the sentencing for his 2016 attempted break-in, Wilson Jr. was forced to go through drug treatment.

Wilson Jr. was drafted by Detroit in the third round of the 2005 draft and played for only two seasons before tearing his achilles, an injury that ended his career. His father, the former Cincinnati Bengals running back Wilson Sr., struggled with cocaine and also had run-ins with the law.

Wilson Sr. infamously had a relapse the night before his team’s Super Bowl matchup with Joe Montana’s San Francisco 49ers in 1989. Twenty minutes after Wilson Sr. told some of his teammates that he was grabbing his playbook before a team meeting, his position coach Jim Anderson found him in the bathroom high on cocaine.

The Bengals were forced to keep Wilson Sr. off the Super Bowl roster, and the team’s former coach Sam Wyche partially blamed their 20-16 defeat on the loss of Wilson Sr. The running back was then banned from the NFL for life since it was his third violation of the league’s drug policy. He was sentenced to 22 years in prison for burglary in 1999.
