Kellen Winslow II jailed again on allegations of lewd conduct

Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II is being held in a California jail without bail amid new allegations of lewd conduct.

Winslow was booked into Vista Detention Facility shortly before 3 p.m. on Monday and is not eligible for release, according to online jail records. The 35-year-old had been out on bail after being accused last year of kidnapping and raping two homeless women and raping an unconscious 17-year-old woman when he was 19. He pleaded not guilty to those charges last summer.

Now, Winslow is facing additional misdemeanor charges after The San Diego Union-Tribune reported he allegedly touched himself in front of a 77-year-old woman at a gym last month. He also touched the woman’s arm and foot while they were in a hot tub at the gym nine days later, according to the newspaper.

The San Diego County District Attorney’s Office did not immediately reply to a message left by USA TODAY Sports.

Winslow was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2004 NFL draft and spent 10 seasons in the NFL with four different teams, including a 2007 Pro Bowl nod while with the Cleveland Browns. He would likely face life in prison if convicted.
