New York Jets tight end Kellen Winslow was charged with possession of synthetic marijuana in November, but that is not the reason why a woman called police officers to a Target parking lot in East Hanover, N.J.

According to NJ.com, the woman believed she saw Winslow masturbating in his Cadillac Escalade outside of Target.

Here is a portion of the report obtained by NJ.com:

“As she exited her vehicle, she commented to the male regarding how cold it was. As she stood near the open driver side window of the Escalade, she observed the males [sic] erect penis. She stated that she believed he was masturbating. [The woman] provided a written statement regarding her account.”

When police officers arrived, Winslow was allegedly, “slouched in his seat and moving around.” When confronted by the officers, Winslow supposedly said he was looking for a Boston Market and got lost, according to the report.

NJ.com proceeded to describe what allegedly occurred:

“The cop noticed Winslow was wearing 'dark colored'sweatpants and wrote that 'his genitals were not exposed.' But the cop also noticed 'two open containers of Vaseline on his center console' and plastic bags marked 'Mr. Happy' and empty plastic containers of 'Funky Monkey' scattered throughout the vehicle.

“Winslow allegedly told police he smoked the 'Mr. Happy' and 'Funky Monkey' at his home to relax because the NFL doesn't drug test for it, and that he buys the stuff on the internet and at gas stations. Police say he consented to a vehicle search, and after a few items were seized into evidence, Winslow was free to go.”

Lab tests later revealed Winslow was in possession of synthetic marijuana, and he was formally charged on Dec. 30. Last week, he pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Winslow's publicist, Denise White, released a statement via Twitter on Friday:
