Former Detroit Lions Receiver Titus Young Arrested Again


Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young is seriously troubled and it continues to show with his off-field antics. On Friday night, Young was arrested for the third time in less than a week. He was arrested in San Clemente, California after breaking in to a home, according to Lt. Joe Balicki of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department.

After a brief struggle and fight with police officers, Young was charged with burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest.

Last Sunday, Young was arrested twice within 15 hours after being arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and later jumping a fence looking for his car. He was charged with burglary.

Young attempted to show he matured when he added “Sr.” to his jersey in Detroit, but it is clear that he is still very immature and in need of serious help. He was released from the team after a number of behavioral incidents.

According to the police department, Young is still in in custody with bail set at $75,000.
