Stop me if you’ve heard this before. Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been arrested.
No, seriously. Details of the incident are scarce at the moment, but Young has reportedly been charged with battery for causing serious bodily injury in Los Angeles, according to the Detroit Free Press.
Young was arrested July 9, just one day before he was scheduled to make a pretrial hearing appearance in Newport Beach, Calif., where he is facing four felonies and seven other criminal charges.
The former 2011 second round pick (No. 44 overall) out of Boise State is currently in custody in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles and his bail has been set at $105,000.
A once-promising NFL career has been dashed due to a string off-the-field incidents. The 5-11, 174-pound wide out was arrested four times in May 2013—including three times in the span of a week—and his father indicated at the time that Young was suffering from a brain disorder and needed medical help.
The soon-to-be 25-year-old was released by the Detroit Lions in February 2013 after making 81 receptions for 990 yards and 10 touchdowns in 26 games (17 starts) in two seasons with the club and actually declaring he was better than Calvin Johnson.
