Former NFL tight end Kellen Winslow II is being held in a California jail without bail amid new allegations of lewd conduct.

Winslow was booked into Vista Detention Facility shortly before 3 p.m. on Monday and is not eligible for release, according to online jail records. The 35-year-old had been out on bail after being accused last year of kidnapping and raping two homeless women and raping an unconscious 17-year-old woman when he was 19. He pleaded not guilty to those charges last summer.

Now, Winslow is facing additional misdemeanor charges after he allegedly touched himself in front of a 77-year-old woman at a gym last month. He also touched the woman’s arm and foot while they were in a hot tub at the gym nine days later, according to reports.

According to a copy of a complaint Tuesday, the new charges include two counts of lewd conduct, one count of willful cruelty to an elder and one count of battery against an elder.

Winslow was the No. 6 overall pick in the 2004 NFL draft and spent 10 seasons in the NFL with four different teams, including a 2007 Pro Bowl nod while with the Cleveland Browns. He would likely face life in prison if convicted.
