After initially being arrested over the summer for battery, it seems former Lions’ receiver Titus Young could face up to nine years in prison for multiple charges levied against him, including battery against his former lawyer Brian Hurwitz, who Young punched several times in the face after being told he would not be released from the medical treatment facility he was in at the time. Via Sporting News:
Young is set for a pretrial hearing Jan. 13 on four charges of battery in Compton, Calif. He also faces three misdemeanor accounts of battery on school, park or hospital property and one count of felony battery with serious bodily injury.
All incidents have reportedly occurred since May 28. The felony charge came after an encounter on July 8 between Young and his former lawyer, Brian Hurwitz.
According to a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department arrest report obtained by the Detroit Free Press , Young “stood up from his chair and punched (Hurwitz) several times to his face. After being punched by (Young), (Hurwitz) said he lost consciousness. After regaining consciousness, (Hurwitz) said he was bleeding profusely from his nose and that his nose was swollen and felt broken. He also had pain to his forehead and jaw area.”
Young faces 11 other charges in Orange County as well.
