Titus Young has been arrested again and no, this isn't a repeat from last week
Young was arrested at 11:30 p.m. Friday night in San Clemente, Calif., after breaking into a home, said Lt. Joe Balicki of the Orange County Sheriff’s Department. When police arrived at the scene, Young fled on foot, leading to a brief pursuit that included a scuffle with the officers.
"There was a brief struggle," said Lt Balicki. "He wanted to fight with the deputies. They ended up subduing him."
However, neither Young nor the police officers were injured during the struggle preceding the arrest.
"There were some punches thrown, some kicks, but there was no Tasering,” added Balicki.
According to the police report, Young was arrested on charges of burglary, assaulting an officer and resisting arrest. As of 1 p.m ET Sunday, Young was still in custody, with bail set at $75,000. Young was already out of jail on bail from incidents earlier this week. This time he isn’t expected to be released until his arraignment Monday morning.
Its been a bad week for the Young, who has been arrested three times in a five day’s span. Young was initially arrested at 12:01 a.m. last Sunday in Moreno Valley, Calif., after he made an illegal left turn into oncoming traffic. He was charged with DUI and released on bail. However, less than 15 hours later, Young again popped on the police’s radar after they received a call about trespassing from a car impound company. The police arriving at the scene found him trying to break in the fence of the impound lot to retrieve the black Ford he was driving during the earlier arrest. He was arrested at 2:22 p.m. the same day on burglary charges.
So far, Young’s offseason activities won’t make it any easier for the free agent to land a spot on an NFL roster this season. The Lions waived him in February following a tumultuous seasons and streak of bad behavior, which including outbursts that resulted in him being sent home on three different occasions. Although the St. Louis Rams claimed him off waivers, he was released in less than two weeks after the team realized he was not worth the risk.
Young’s former high school coach E.C. Robinson expressed concern over the 23-year-old NFL player’s latest strings of arrests earlier this week, and hoped that he would seek help. Former teammates, such as cornerback Chris Houston have also been worried by Young’s erratic behavior this offseason.
‘Really need to pray for Titus Young for real! Really is a good dude wish someone reach out to him before anything tragic!” wrote Houston after Young’s latest arrest this week.
