A former Detroit Lions cornerback, Stanley Wilson II, was shot while allegedly attempting to break into a Portland, Ore., home naked Wednesday, according to a report from KGW.com.

The Multnomah County Sheriff’s Office told KGW.com that the shooting occurred shortly before 4 p.m., and that deputies found Wilson in a water fountain in the backyard. He was taken into custody and rushed into a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

Wilson, 33, was a third-round NFL draft pick (No. 72 overall) in 2005 out of Stanford and played for the Lions from 2005-07. He was waived by the Lions in 2008 with 86 career tackles and 8 passes defended.

Deputies told KGW.com that they don’t know why Wilson was at the home or why he was naked.

Wilson’s father, Stanley Wilson Sr., was also an NFL player. The Cincinnati Bengals running back missed Super Bowl XXIII in 1989 against the San Francisco 49ers and was later found in a hotel bathroom with cocaine and drug paraphernalia. He was banned for life from the NFL after his third drug offense.

Wilson is accused of first- and second-degree attempted burglary, along with first- and second-degree trespassing. More charges are expected, KGW.com reports.
