An ex-NFL player was house hunting for his mother-in-law in southern California when he was arrested on suspicion of burglary after a neighbor called police, authorities and the former tight end’s representative said.

Kellen Winslow Jr., 34, who played as a tight end for the Cleveland Browns and other teams, was arrested Thursday afternoon in the northern San Diego County beach city of Encinitas and booked on suspicion of burglary, according to a statement from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department.
A person called the sheriff’s office at around 2:39 p.m. local time and reported a possible residential burglary and “the reporting party indicated a black male adult had walked into a neighbor’s residence,” and that person confronted the man because they “did not recognize him as being the resident who lived there,” according to the sheriff’s department.
