Former Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young comes across as, well, not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer.

But even for a guy who has gotten himself into plenty of trouble off the field, this takes the cake.

According to the Oakland (Mich.) Press, Young was arrested twice in Southern California in a 15-hour period Sunday, the second time for trying to steal his own car.

Young’s crime spree started just after midnight when he was arrested by the Morena Valley police for driving under the influence. He was then booked, issued a citation and released.

Early in the afternoon, cops were called to an impound lot after someone reported seeing a man jump over the fence. Cops allegedly found Young trying to find the black Mustang he was driving when he was arrested for DUI.

So Young was again arrested, this time for burglary.


Young, a problem child during his time with the Lions, was released in February. During the 2012 season, he sucker punched teammate Louis Delmas, lined up in the wrong spot (intentionally, it was alleged) and was sent home by the team on two occasions.

The St. Louis Rams claimed Young on waivers but cut him a few days later.
