Titus Young arrested twice in 15-hour span

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young completed his fall from grace by being arrested twice in a 15-hour span over the weekend.

Titus Young's fall from grace is officially complete. The former Detroit Lions wide receiver was arrested twice in a 15-hour span this past Sunday, according to the Oakland Press' Paula Pasche. The two arrests happened in Moreno Valley, California, and they are merely the latest chapter in what can only be described as a very troubling year for the former second-round pick.

The first arrest on Sunday for Young, according to the report, happened after 12:01 a.m. when he was stopped for making an illegal left turn. He was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, and he was later cited and released from custody.

Later in the day, shortly after 2:22 p.m., Young was arrested again, this time for burglary. It turns out he tried to get his impounded Ford Mustang out of the tow yard where it was being held. Police were called because Young jumped over the fence of the yard, and he was arrested again as a result.

Young was released by the Lions back in February. They finally said enough was enough after he went on multiple Twitter rants. This was after he allegedly tried to sabotage the offense last season by lining up incorrectly on purpose. He was sent home after that incident, and after briefly returning, he was sent home again for good. This all came after he sucker punched Louis Delmas last May and was sent home for the first time.

After the Lions released him, the St. Louis Rams gave Young a second chance in the NFL, but it didn't last long. He was quickly released by St. Louis, and given that he clearly hasn't learned anything from his past mistakes, I think it's safe to say we won't be seeing him in an NFL uniform anytime soon.
