The NFL is full of stories featuring players who grew out of their young-and-dumb pasts to become reasonably responsible citizens. And then, there are those guys who will just never get it. It's safe to assume that former Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young is one of the guys who will never get it. Young, who was jettisoned from the Lions on Feb. 4 for a litany of transgressions we'll detail later, was picked up and waived soon thereafter by the St. Louis Rams, whose head coach, Jeff Fisher, has a colorful history when it comes to taking chances on players with dubious off-field histories. We should have known that a guy who didn't pass the smell test with the Lions or Fisher was headed for a weird future, and we would have been very correct.
According to a report from Paula Pasche of the Oakland (Mich.) Press, Young was arrested twice in a 15-hour period last Sunday. He was pulled over at 12:01 a.m. by the Moreno Valley police in Southern California for suspicion of drunk driving, and subsequently arrested for driving under the influence. He was booked at a local detention center, was issued a citation, and was released from custody.
Ah, but we're not done yet. At 2:22 p.m. that very same day, police responded to a tow yard, where Young had been seen jumping over the fence. He was trying to find his black Mustang, which had been impounded upon his first arrest of the day. Young was taken to the same detention center and booked for trying to steal his own car.

I think his career was done when Jeff Fisher didn't even want to be bothered with him. If Fisher decides you aren't worth the trouble after only a couple of weeks, that should tell you and everyone else something.

LOL gotta keep it real!!!!!!!!!! what are these guys thinking when they do this crap? "Well, I know I should just stay in tonight, don't want to risk my multi million dollar career in the NFL but I gotta keep it real son so Imma drive drunk then break into the police impound lot cuz I dont give a F$$$ Wat would Weezy do yo?" It's almost like some of these guys self destruct on purpose.

If his NFL playing days are over he has no one to blame but himself.

We Lions' fans got to watch that train wreck as it happened.

Kinda dumb to complain that you're not getting the ball as much as Megatron.

Former NFL receiver Titus Young has squandered his talent -- that much is for sure. And at this point, a future in the NFL is least of his worries.
Young, who was released by the Detroit Lions in February after a number of on-field and off-field incidents, was arrested on Friday and charged with burglary, assaulting a police officer, and resisting arrest. This happened after Young was reportedly seen breaking into a San Clemente, Calif. home. When officers arrived Friday night, Lt. Joe Balicki of the Orange County Sheriff's Department told the Detroit News, Young fled on foot and fought with police after he was pursued for a short time. There were no injuries in the fracas. He is being held on $75,000 bail.
"He actually tried to fight with them,” Balicki told the Detroit Free Press. “But there were more deputies than him so they were able to subdue him without — I guess there were some punches thrown, but they were able to get him into handcuffs without too much damage.”
On Sunday, May 5, Young was arrested twice in a 15-hour span in Southern California:

Couldn't believe the news today when I saw he was involved in a burglary, etc., he has really gone down the wrong path and doesn't look like he'll have a future in the NFL. Talk about throwing away your opportunities.
