Former Lions defensive back, Stanley Wilson Jr. dies at 40 after collapsing inside mental hospital

 Stanley Wilson Jr., a defensive back who played three seasons for the Detroit Lions, has died at the age of 40. Wilson died on February 1 at Metropolitan State Hospital in Los Angeles, according to TMZ.com. No cause of death has been released.  Wilson Jr. was taken to the hospital for treatment on Feb. 1 after being declared incompetent to stand trial following a vandalism arrest that happened in August.  According to the outlet, Wilson Jr. was accused of breaking into a Hollywood Hills home twice on separate occasions, with one visit resulting in damage to property at the home. His autopsy report is pending toxicology reports. Foul play is reportedly not suspected. He was the son of former Bengals running back Stanley Wilson Sr. He only played two seasons with the Lions, ending his career in 2007 after the Detroit team drafted him in 2005. Wilson Jr. had multiple run-ins with law enforcement after his playing career, including a charge of attempted burglary after he broke into a home in Portland in 2016. According to TMZ, the former athlete was “completely nude” when the incident occurred. He was arrested again twice in 2017, once for walking nude around a neighborhood in Portland and then for an additional allegation of attempted breaking and entering, the outlet reported at the time. Wilson Jr. recorded 87 tackles, eight pass breakups, and one forced fumble over the span of 32 games played in the NFL.The post Former Lions defensive back, Stanley Wilson Jr. dies at 40 after collapsing inside mental hospital appeared first on Linda Ikeji Blog.
