LOS ANGELES (97.1 The Ticket) — Former Detroit Lions wideout Titus Young has had a run-in with the law once again.

According to The Detroit Free Press, Young has been arrested on “battery with serious bodily injury”, a felony and is being held on $105,000 bail in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles.

Police arrested Young three times in the span of a week in May 2013 for crimes ranging from DUI to shoplifting to residential burglary, and Young faces 11 charges, four of them felonies.

Young’s father has said throughout this process that Young deals with mental illness and that the condition factored into his poor decisions. Before the former football player got in trouble with the law, Young got in trouble with the Lions for lashing out on Twitter about playing time, punching teammate Louis Delmas and for reportedly lining up in the wrong spot for a play – on purpose – during a practice.

Young caught 48 passes for 607 yards for the Lions in 2011, when he played in all 16 games. He snagged 33 balls for 383 yards in 10 games the following season. The Lions released Young in February 2013. The St. Louis Rams then signed him but cut him just days later.
