Kellen Winslow gets conditional discharge in synthetic marijuana case

If you remember something about former Jets tight end Kellen Winslow’s arrest in New Jersey last year, it likely has to do with a Target parking lot, a search for Boston Market and two jars of Vaseline in the car.

Police responded to a call from a woman who said she saw Winslow masturbating in his car in the aforementioned parking lot, but police did not catch Winslow in that act. He was found to be in possession of synthetic marijuana, however, and the resulting charges moved toward dismissal on Thursday.

The Newark Star-Ledger reports Winslow was granted a conditional discharge on Thursday and the charges will be dismissed in a year if Winslow avoids arrest and makes regular visits to his probation officer. Winslow’s attorneys had argued that the charges should be dismissed because Fubinaca, the substance found in synthetic marijuana, was not listed as an illegal substance by the DEA until February. A judge rejected that argument, though, because New Jersey law already barred substances mimicking the effect of marijuana.

Winslow said he was happy with the decision because it frees him to pursue employment with an NFL team. Winslow had 31 catches for 388 yards and two touchdowns last season and served a four-game suspension for violating the performance-enhancing drug policy.

    So they gave him a synthetic discharge to go with the synthetic charges.

    He’s going to get clobbered by Roger. This is now his third offense, the can suspend him for the entire season.

    Kellen Winslow Jr’s career is also parked somewhere in the Target car park near Boston Market and maybe he should return to the practices at which he excels with the 2 jars of vaseline.
    Kind of ironic that KWJ is better remembered for falling off his motorbike (yes it was a crotch rocket) and his greasy exploits in the Target car park, than his great play on the field.

    It is sad to see a guy who looked so good early in his career not fulfill his potential, especially when it is not injury-related.

    The damage he did to his knee in the motorcycle crash had a lot to do with him losing his explosiveness. But I think the bigger part is he never understood the work that needed to go into the game to be one of the greats. The Target incident is pretty representative of how he has approached his career. Yet another ridiculously talented athletic specimen with physical ability in the top 1% of all athletes, but didn’t have the brains to make it work.

    You would think his dad would have gotten through to him a little more about what it takes.. I would think Sr. tried but evidently Jr. just didn’t really want it bad enough.

    He did what in a parking lot….Man this dude needs help and quickly!

    A conditional discharge using a half baked excuse for possessing synthetic drugs.

    Keep it real, Kellen.
