Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young was arrested three times last week, and now his father, Richard, is speaking up as to why his son has fallen on hard times.

Richard Young told the Detroit News Monday that his son suffers from a brain disorder and needs professional help.

The elder Young says the condition is caused by the brain being compressed into the front of the skull, though he couldn’t recall the name of the disorder.

“He’s not dealing with it the way he should be,” Young’s father said. “If the judge gives him a court order, then maybe he’ll get the help he needs.”
