Stanley Wilson II puts a suit on, declares himself “happy to be alive”
Former Lions cornerback Stanley Wilson II said Thursday he was “happy to be alive,” but that might have just been because he was wearing clothes.
According to Francesca Fontana of the Oregonian, Wilson was released from the hospital Wednesday and arraigned Thursday, facing felony burglary and misdemeanor trespassing charges. He was shot last week while trying to break into a Portland house, and when police found him, he was naked in a water fountain.
The 33-year-old Wilson was shot in the abdomen by the homeowner.
Unlike his burglary outfit, Wilson was wearing a dark gray suit to court Thursday. He posted $54,500 bond and was released. The judge ordered him to not go within 500 feet of the home he was breaking into, which seems like a moot judge’s order since the last time he went there he was shot and found naked. His next court appearance is July 15.
The former third-round pick out of Stanford is the son of former Bengals running back Stanley Wilson, who famously missed a Super Bowl after a cocaine binge the night before the game.
