    Titus Young, former Detroit Lions' receiver, arrested twice in 15 hours

    Titus Young, the former Detroit Lions wide receiver, was arrested twice in 15 hours on Sunday by the Moreno Valley Police Department in southern California.

    According to the police report, Young was stopped at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday after making an illegal left turn in front of a patrol car.

    Young was stopped and arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. He was booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center and later issued a citation and released from custody.

    Hours later, at 2:22 p.m. that day, officers responded to a tow company yard where a man was seen jumping over the fence.

    It was Young looking for his black Mustang.

    He was arrested for burglary after the police determined he was trying to take his own vehicle. He was booked again at the same detention center.

    Two arrests, hence two mug shots.

    The 23-year-old Young, who was a disruption for the Lions last season, was released by the team on Feb. 4, the first day NFL teams could cut players.

    He was a problem child for much of the 2012 season. He sucker-punched teammate Louis Delmas last spring and was sent home from the practice facility.

    Young lined up in the wrong spots in the Lions game on Nov. 18. He was sent home after that debacle, then allowed back to practice and eventually sent home again.


    Young, who was a second-round draft pick in 2011 out of Boise State, officially finished the 2012 season on injured reserve with a a bad knee.

    There is no doubt that Young has NFL-level talent. He just doesn’t have the right mindset to be a quality NFL wide receiver.

    Two weeks prior to his release he sent out tweets apparently looking for sympathy. It backfired.

    The first tweet said: “Like I said I never been selfish but if I’m not going to get the football I don’t want to play anymore.’’

    Doesn’t exactly sound like a mature NFL player. Coach Jim Schwartz told reporters at the Senior Bowl on the day following the tweets that they weren’t such a good idea.

    Young also tweeted on that same day: “Never have I ran the wrong route, just put myself where the ball was going.’’

    Lions general manager Martin Mayhew said he couldn’t trade Young because he had no trade value.

    “I didn’t talk to anybody, I didn’t call 32 GMs and try to get a seventh if (draft pick) or anything like that,’’ Mayhew said on Feb. 7. “It’s my job to know what his value is and he didn’t have any trade value.’’


    This mugshot though

    This guy has about as much chance of being on a 53 man roster on opening day 2013 as Jim Thorpe.

    Titus Young is a shining example of what the great American philosopher, Ron White, was referring to when he said.....

    .....You can't fix stupid!

    He's also an example why I don't worry (too) much about Ogletree, et al. Fisher has shown he knows the difference between (made-a-stupid-mistake) guy, and wingnuts like Young.
