Winslow, at his home in the San Diego suburb of Encinitas, was arrested and bailed for $ 50,000 released. He is expected to be charged on Friday.

34-year-old Winslow, who played 10 seasons in the NFL and was a 2007 Pro Bowl candidate, was selected by the police in his SUV stopped and was identified as the person who is involved in an apartment burglary in a RV park.

The Sheriff Department said earlier this week that it was investigating the circumstances of the arrest. A spokesman for the department said Winslow had made conflicting and divergent statements about why he was in the RV Park.

Winslow, the son of Hall of Famer Tight End Kellen Winslow, has not played since 2013 in the NFL's lonely season with the New York Jets. He missed four games this season because of a suspension for the violation of NFL policy for performance-enhancing drugs. He was also arrested this year for possessing synthetic marijuana.

Winslow had his best season with the Cleveland Browns in 2007, when he caught 82 passes for 1,106 yards and five touchdowns and was a Pro Bowl pick. He also starred for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots throughout his career.
