Former NFL cornerback Stanley Wilson Jr. has had a rough life since playing his last NFL season in 2007.

Unfortunately, that rough road has led to another arrest for theft - a charge he has faced before.

According to TMZ, the Los Angeles Police Department has arrested Wilson for breaking into a house.

According to the report, he is accused of taking a bath in an outdoor fountain after "ravaging" the house.

Wilson reportedly broke into the same Hollywood Hills property on two other occasions.

The most recent arrest cost him about $5,000 in damages to the place.

TMZ reported that there are no known links between Wilson, the homeowners, or the property itself.

More worryingly, this is hardly the first time Wilson has been arrested on such a charge.

A one-time third-round pick by the Detroit Lions in the 2005 NFL Draft,

Stanley Wilson Jr. played just three NFL seasons before a career-ending Achilles injury during the 2008 preseason.

Since then, Wilson has apparently had issues with drugs.

He was charged with attempted burglary in July 2016 after he was shot while trying to break into a man's home while naked.

A few months later he tested positive for methamphetamine.

Wilson was arrested twice more in 2017 for theft while naked.

We can only hope that the former NFL star finds some way to bring his life back together.
