Kellen Winslow to enter plea Thursday in marijuana case

HANOVER — New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. is scheduled to have his first appearance in municipal court Thursday morning on a charge of possession of Fubinaca, a synthetic form of marijuana.

Winslow, 30, of Madsion, will enter a plea during his appearance in East Hanover Municipal Court, which shares a joint court with Hanover.

Winslow was allegedly found in possession of the designer form of cannabis on Nov. 19 by East Hanover police officer John M. Fox. Police had received a complaint from a woman who said she saw Winslow masturbating inside his car outside the Target store on Route 10 in East Hanover, according to a police report.

A publicist for Winslow later issued a statement saying he was only changing his clothes.

Winslow was formally charged on Dec. 30 after lab tests that came back on Dec. 23 revealed Winslow was allegedly in possession of synthetic marijuana, according to the police report.

He pleaded not guilty at his initial appearance before central judicial processing in Superior Court in Morristown last month, and the case was referred to municipal court.
