He was suspected of breaking into a home in the Hollywood Hills of Los Angeles and trespassing on the property, according to the report. The suspect is also believed to have bathed in the indoor fountain on the property.
Prosecutors said Wilson was found incompetent to stand trial, which resulted in his transfer to the mental health care facility.

The Detroit Lions selected Wilson in the third round of the 2005 draft. He went on to play two seasons with the Lions before suffering an Achilles tear in a preseason game.
Ultimately, he was unable to recover from the injury and ended his football career.
Wilson’s father, Stanley Wilson Sr., also played in the NFL. He finished his career with 89 tackles and a forced fumble.
The cause of death was not immediately known, but authorities are expected to perform an autopsy. At this point in the investigation, there is no suspicion of foul play.
Wilson was previously arrested in connection with a 2016 home invasion. He was shot during the attempted home invasion in Portland and was allegedly naked at the time.
In January 2017, Wilson was arrested for allegedly walking through a neighborhood with no clothes on. Another arrest occurred the following month that also stemmed from a home invasion.
