Stanley Wilson II, a former Detroit Lions cornerback, was shot while reportedly attempting to break into a home in Portland, Oregon, on Thursday, per KGW.

Wilson II was naked at the time of the shooting and taken into custody with non-life threatening injuries. He’s been accused of first- and second-degree attempted burglary, and first- and second-degree trespassing, with more charges expected to come.

There is no stated reasoning for Wilson II being naked.

Wilson II’s father, a former NFL player in his own right, was banned from the NFL for life after a third drug offense. He was later accused of stealing $130,000 worth of property and was sentenced to 22 years in prison in 1999.
