Naked ex-Lion Wilson shot by homeowner

The Detroit News

Former Lions cornerback Stanley Wilson suffered non-life threatening injuries after being shot by a homeowner while trying to break into a Portland home while naked, according to KGW.com.

Stanley Wilson played for the Lions from 2005-07.

Deputies found Wilson in a water fountain in the homeowner's backyard. He was taken into custody, then rushed to a nearby hospital.

Deputies do not know why Wilson was at the home, or why he was naked.

Wilson, 33, played for the Lions from 2005-07 after being in the third round (72nd overall) in the 2005 NFL draft out of Stanford.

Wilson has been charged with first- and second-degree attempted burglary, and first- and second-degree trespassing. The investigation is ongoing and more charges are expected.

Neighbors told KGW that at least two other area homes were recently burglarized. It's unclear if Wilson was involved in those break-ins.

Wilson's father, Stanley Wilson Sr., also played in the NFL for the Bengals. He became notorious after he missed Super Bowl XXIII and was found in a hotel bathroom with cocaine and drug paraphernalia.
