After Another Court No-Show, Warrant Issued For Titus Young
DETROIT (CBS Detroit) Missing his fourth scheduled court hearing in a row, Titus Young was slapped with a $100,000 bench warrant Tuesday in California.
The former Detroit Lions wide receiver was due to appear for an 11-count criminal case racked up in a serious of oddball incidents, including three arrests in one week.
Young, who was a second-round draft pick in 2011 but was released in February, had pleaded not guilty to four felonies and seven misdemeanors after being arrested outside a home in San Clemente on May 10.
He hasn’t been seen in public since. So where is he? USA Today reported his attorney Altus Hudson said he doesn’t expect Young to be arrested, saying the court knows his location.
The judge also revoked Young’s bail.
So, what’s going on with Titus Young? An online Sports Illustrated venture outlined his unraveling, starting with high school coaches who said they tried to get him help while he was playing in Detroit where he complained he should be the No. 1 receiver instead of superstar Calvin Johnson, fought with safety Louis Delmas in practice and was generally dissatisfied. He was eventually cut after lining up in the wrong lanes during a game, much to the ire of teammates and coach Jim Schwartz.
