Another day, another felony charge for Titus Young, who seems to get arrested every time you change your underwear, assuming most of you take hygiene fairly serious. This time the troubled former Detroit Lions wide receiver has been arrested on another felony charge – battery with serious bodily injury – and is in custody in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles, with bail set at $105,000, according to an L.A. district attorney’s office spokesperson and the L.A. sheriff’s department’s website. Young also received charges on four counts of battery of school, park or hospital property, however those are misdemeanors.
Titus was arrested July 9, 2014, 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. In May of 2013 Young was charged with felony burglary and assault, for a combined 11 total charges, that’s more charges than some backup receivers get catches in the NFL!
His father, Richard Young acknowledged in the past that Titus suffered from mental disorders that required treatment, although his family members and lawyers have declined to comment on what treatments he is receiving. Although I can safely say, they are not working.
Titus showed so much potential his rookie year catching 48 passes for 607 yards and six touchdowns, however it has been a downward spiral for him ever since he was released by the Lions for behavior issues. This is the point where you have to be concerned about the man’s life, if he is willing to seek proper care, it’s still not to late to get back on the right path.
