(SAN CLEMENTE, Calif.) — The troubles for Titus Young continue and at an alarming pace. The former Detroit Lions wide receiver was arrested over the weekend for the third time in one week.
Orange County, California Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Joe Balicki says Young was arrested late Friday for allegedly breaking into a home. Young apparently fought with deputies after a foot chase. He was later charged with attempted burglary, assaulting a police officer, and resisting arrest.
“There was a brief struggle,” Balicki said, according to the Detroit News. “He wanted to fight with the deputies. They ended up subduing him.”
Young’s latest arrest capped off a busy week for him. He was also arrested last Sunday in Riverside County on suspicion of driving under the influence. He was then arrested again on the same day for trying to take his car from a tow yard.
The Lions waived Young back on Feb. 4 after a number of disciplinary issues during his two years with the team.
Young, 23, was a second-round pick of the Lions in the 2011 NFL Draft. Despite his immense talent, Young couldn’t save his NFL career.
