It turns out there’s more to Kellen Winslow’s recent synthetic marijuana bust.

Before cops in East Hanover, N.J., arrested the New York Jets tight end for possession last November, a pedestrian says she caught the 30-year-old in the midst of an illegal procedure.

He was masturbating, according to court documents obtained by NJ.com.

The report states a woman, whose name was redacted, pulled up next to Winslow's Escalade on Nov. 19 before commenting on the fact Winslow’s window was open in the cold. While standing there, the woman alleged she saw the “male’s erect penis."

"She believed he was masturbating,” a police report said.

According to the NJ.com story, when police arrived, they found Winslow slumped in his car, wearing dark-coloured sweats. His genitals were not exposed, according to police at the scene.

A police report also stated cops found two open containers of Vaseline and Funky Monkey (synthetic marijuana) in the car.

Winslow's publicist, Denise White, issued a statement on Twitter Friday in response to the allegations against her client.

"Kellen pulled over to a parking lot to smoke what he thought at the time was a legal substance," the statement read. "He changed his clothes in his vehicle as to not smell like smoke when he returned home. There was absolutely nothing inappropriate that took place and if there was police would have investigated further and charged Kellen which they did not.”

While a police report listed lewdness as one of Winslow’s alleged crimes, the former Pro Bowler has only been charged with synthetic marijuana possession.

The charge is a third-degree offense and, if convicted, Winslow could face up to five years in prison.
