Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young was issued a Class C assault citation early Sunday morning.

The citation came after an exchange that turned violent around 3:30 AM in the back office of Club Onyx. Security cameras in the strip club showed Young charging and throwing a punch at a man after he appeared to flash an upside-down longhorn’s sign at him during a verbal exchange.   

After reviewing the security footage and interviewing witnesses at the club, police issued the citation that is punishable by a $500 fine. Police officials say they do not plan to arrest Young or press any further charges even though he had already left the club when officers arrived. 

After his disappearing act and off-field issues turned into an awful preseason last season, it appeared that everything was over for Young. Then the former Texas star took over for Kerry Collins midseason, and looked like the quarterback that took the Longhorns to a national championship over USC.

Since then all has been quiet on the Tennessee home front. The only real ongoing story is whether or not 2,000-yard rusher Chris Johnson is going to get his new contract.

But the flashing of police lights brought bad news to the Titans organization once again.

The Titans released a statement through their spokesman Robbie Bohren saying, “We are aware of the report about Vince Young. The organization has been in touch with Vince and we will continue to gather additional information.”

The Titans begin a three day mini-camp Monday, it is unclear whether or not Young will be in attendance.
