According to Josh Katzenstein of The Detroit News, the Orange County Sheriff’s Department revealed the 23-year-old was charged with burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest:
Katzenstein's report notes that Young broke into a home in San Clemente, Calif., fled on foot when officers arrived on the scene and attempted to fight before being captured.

This latest incident is yet another significant blemish on the former wideout’s growing criminal record since being released by the Lions in February.

However, Young decided to try to retrieve his car from the impound lot and was spotted climbing over a fence at the tow yard. He wound up being booked at the same detention center.
Young’s prospects of getting a second chance in the NFL look slimmer than ever after this arrest, as it is becoming clear he hasn’t learned his lesson.
Will Titus Young get another chance in the NFL?
It’s another sad twist for a young player who had so much promise coming out of Boise State and was selected in the second-round back in the 2011 draft.
Hopefully there is a happy ending to this story, but with the way things have gone for Young over the past week or so, the odds of that look bleak.
