Tennessee Titans

Vince Young Charged With Assault Citation

Lion's Den U's TheCoachCorrespondent IJune 14, 2010

Vince Young is screwed, and so are the Tennessee Titans.

The Dallas Police Department issued Titans' quarterback Vince Young a Class C assault citation  for his role in a Sunday morning altercation at a strip club in Dallas.

One person was injured and officials have reviewed a tape and interviewed witnesses before issuing the citation (punishable up to $500).

The altercation allegedly broke out in a back office after words were exchanged at Club Onyx on 10557 Wire Way near Interstate 35E in Northwest Dallas .

The video shows Young in a back office talking to a manager.

Another man in the office makes a derogatory “Horns down” hand sign in reference to the University of Texas. Bad idea. (It's Young’s alma mater). That was followed by something else verbally spoken to the quarterback.

Young is then seen talking to the manager for another couple seconds before running after the man who made the hand signal...and a fight with multiple people breaks loose.

At 3:38 A.M., a call to police came in reporting “two black males fighting in the parking lot.” Club security made a second call to police at 4:06 a.m. followed by a call to EMS crews at about 5:30 a.m...(little late don't you think?).

The offense report  shows that no medical attention was needed, but still. Two hours for an EMS call is a LONG time. 

Police believe Young left the scene before officers arrived (they probably took their sweet time as well), a Dallas PD official said.

“We are aware of the report about Vince Young,” Robbie Bohren said after being in contact with the four-year one-time franchise player who has had many other problems in his short career

He is most known for driving the Longhorn football team to a national championship in 2006. He threw for 467 yards in that win against USC, who had Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush.

The Houston, Texas native was drafted with the third overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft and remains the starting quarterback for the Nashville-based Tennessee Titans.

But for how long?

Could be troubling for Young and the Titans.
