Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been arrested AGAIN, according to the Detroit News' Josh Katzenstein. This marks the third time in less than a week that Young has been arrested, and the charges sound even worse this time:
For Friday's incident, Young was charged with burglary, assaulting a PO and resisting arrest, according to Orange County Sheriff's Dept.— Josh Katzenstein (@jkatzenstein) May 12, 2013
The latest arrest happened on Friday night. According to the report, Young is accused of breaking into a home and then fleeing on foot when police arrived. Once he was caught, there was a "brief struggle" between Young and the officers before he was arrested.
Young's first two arrests from the last week happened in a 15-hour span last Sunday. Young was first arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence, and he was arrested again later in the day after hopping a fence at the tow yard where his car was being held. That incident led to his first burglary charge.
All I can really say at this point is that somebody needs to step in and get Young some help. He is going beyond simply destroying his NFL career. Now he's destroying his life at an alarming pace.
UPDATE: Here's the mugshot for Young's latest arrest:
