Police say naked intruder shot by homeowner is ex-NFL player

Posted: Updated:

Authorities say a homeowner in Portland, Oregon, shot an intruder who turned out to be former Detroit Lions cornerback Stanley Wilson II.

The Multnomah County Sheriff's Office tells The Oregonian/Oregon Live for a story published Thursday that Wilson tried to break through the back window of a multimillion-dollar home. He's hospitalized but expected to recover.

Sheriff's Capt. Steve Alexander says he can't give details on the extent of the 33-year-old's injuries or why he was naked and trying to get into the house Wednesday.

Wilson, whose NFL career ended in 2008 after an injury, has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree burglary and first-degree trespassing.

Oregon law allows a person to use deadly physical force against someone trying to burglarize their home.
