    My goodness... Did you guys actually read the article? I mean, just, wow....

    Per NFL.com:

    Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young was arrested early Saturday after allegedly entering a San Clemente home in the middle of the night and scuffling with deputies. This was Young's third arrest in less than a week.

    Young was arrested early Saturday after police responded to a 911 burglary call from a house, Orange County Sheriff's Department spokesman Lt. Joe Balicki told NFL.com on Sunday.

    Balicki said Young was outside when police arrived, and after "a brief foot pursuit," Young was arrested by deputies.

    "They chased him down," Balicki said to NFL.com. "There were some punches thrown, some kicks, but there was no Tasering."

    Balicki said he knew of no relationship between the home's resident and Young, adding Young's car had been towed away earlier that day from San Clemente.

    According to 911 dispatch logs, the home's sole male occupant called the police shortly before midnight Friday after someone had opened his bedroom door and left. The resident then grabbed a rifle and waited for police. Deputies arrived nine minutes after the initial call and at 12:14 a.m. a person wearing "red overalls" was reported running on Calle Casino. A helicopter was requested to help look for the man, but by 12:20 a.m. the cuffs were on.

    Young was booked on suspicion of burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. Bail was set at $75,000, but since Young already was out on bond, Balicki said it's unlikely Young would be released prior to his arraignment Monday. Balicki said there have been no issues with Young in custody.

    It was the former receiver's third arrest in five days. He also was arrested twice in the span of 15 hours in Moreno Valley, Calif., last Sunday. He was arrested on suspicion of DUI on May 5 and later released. He was arrested again less than 15 hours later after he was caught jumping the fence of an impound lot, trying to abscond his own black Mustang.

    Young's high school coach, E.C. Robinson, earlier this week said he hoped his former player would seek help. Instead, Young found more trouble.

    The former Lion's situation quickly went from comical to sad. Needless to say, there are more important things than a future NFL career for him to worry about.


    He robbed the dude, then it took them 12 minutes to respond. What that was not enough tmie for him to get our of the area? Apparently the dude is not fast enough.

    Tried to jump an impound lot to get his car back... This guy is actually insane..

    I love the fact that he was arrested in part because of burglary. Don't you think he was making enough money to not worry about stooping this low...

    Nah, something doesn't smell right. The link said the relationship between the house owner and Titus are 'not known.' There has to be more to it then just that.... I'm sure there is some backstory to all this.
