A California judge issued an arrest warrant Tuesday after former Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young missed a court hearing. Young has failed to appear at several court hearings regarding an 11-count criminal case from earlier this year. Young had several issues while playing for the Lions. They released Young, in part, for conduct detrimental to the team including punching a teammate and intentionally lining up incorrectly during a game.
When Young did not appear Tuesday, Orange County Superior Court Judge Andrew Manssourian issued the $100,000 bench warrant and revoked Young’s bail. Young’s attorney, Altus Hudson, said the court knows where Titus Young is and he doesn’t expect his client to be arrested. He said the judge issued the warrant in order to keep tabs on Young.
Young has pleaded not guilty to four different felonies and seven different misdemeanors after being arrested in May outside a home in San Clemente. Those incidents came after his arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence, and another arrest 15 hours later after authorities said he was caught trying to retrieve his car from a tow yard in a Los Angeles suburb. He was charged with misdemeanor for that and the case is still pending. Young’s ex-girlfriend also has filed a restraining order against him. Can it get any worse?
