Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young was arrested twice on Sunday. Originally, Young was arrested shortly after midnight Sunday for suspicion of drunk driving. According to The Oakland Press, Young was then arrested later in the day when he attempted to steal his own vehicle from a police impound lot. He was arrested for the second time in 15 hours and charged with burglary.

Young had a very short lived, rocky NFL career. He was released by the Lions on February 4 of this season. A legend in his own mind, Young was a disruptive force on and off the field while with the Lions. He admitted to purposely lining up in the wrong formation and running the wrong routes in order to disrupt the Detroit offense. He felt he was not getting the ball often enough. Young also had an altercation with Lions teammate Louis Delmas.

After being cut by the Lions, Young was quickly snatched off the waiver wire by the St. Louis Rams. The second chance Young might have been hoping for in the league was short lived however, as the Rams released him just a few days later.
