    Titans' Vince Young given citation by Dallas police after fight at strip club

    Titans' Vince Young given citation by Dallas police after fight at strip club
    By Calvin Watkins

    DALLAS -- Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young was issued a Class C assault citation after an incident at a Dallas-area strip club early Sunday morning.

    According to surveillance video of the incident, Young threw a punch and set off a fight inside an office at Club Onyx after a man indentified as Creiton Kinchen insulted Young and made a derogatory sign referencing the University of Texas, Young's alma mater.

    "This [Kinchen's comments] obviously made Mr. Young upset," Dallas police Lt. Craig Miller said. "That conversation continues and there was more accusations against the University of Texas which prompted, in this case, Mr. Young to come back into the room where he just about exited."

    According to the police report, Kinchen sustained a bloody lip in the fight, but did not require medical attention.

    Titans spokesman Robbie Bohren said the team was aware of the incident and had contacted Young. He said the team was still gathering information.

    NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a tweet that the league "will look into it."

    The video shows Young conversing with Kinchen and a man indentified by police as the club's manager calmly before nearly exiting the room. Kinchen then flashed an upside-down "Hook 'em Horns" hand sign, causing Young to retaliate. Bystanders attempted to breakup the fight and the lights were briefly turned off before Young exited the room.

    Police told The Associated Press Young was not at the club when police responded to a call of a physical confrontation. His citation is punishable by a fine up to $500.

    A call to Young's attorney Scotty Allen was not returned and Young could not be reached for comment.

    Young returned to form this season after two troubled years in which he dealt with injuries and inconsistency on the field before being replaced by veteran Kerry Collins.

    In Sept. 2008, Nashville, Tenn. police were asked to search for Young after family members called the Titans informing them of their concern about his state of mind.

    Young was later located at a friend's house.

    The concern over Young's well-being came after he was booed in a victory over Jacksonville and left the game with a left knee injury.

    "What would you think, if you were tired of being ridiculed and persecuted and talked about and not being treated very well, what would you do? What kind of decision would you make?'' Young's mother Felecia Young told The Nashville Tennesssean in September 2008. "He may not want to deal with it [all], but you have to get to that point before you make that decision first."

    Titans coach Jeff Fisher was holding his annual charity softball game Sunday night in Nashville. Young was not on the early list of players committed to appear in the game, but he is expected to attend the Titans three-day mandatory minicamp Monday.

    Young, the No. 3 pick overall in 2006, got his starting job back last fall when Tennessee started 0-6 and owner Bud Adams put him back in the lineup. He helped the Titans win eight of their final 10 and heads into his fifth NFL season with a 26-13 record as a starter.

    You'd think professional athletes would realize that strip clubs are nothing but trouble and avoid them at all costs. In fact, the NFL calls them "trouble spots". Roger Goodell has players on a tight leash these days and now Young has at the very least a strike against him with regard to the personal-conduct policy. Hope he had a good time, because if it happens again, he's likely to get a suspension.

    A simple little skirmish like this doesn't even deserve any press coverage. Period!

    Amazing that to some Texans, the upside down "Horn" is worse than giving you the bird.
