At a time when player arrests are (sort of) decreasing, plenty NFL athletes still find themselves riding in the back seat of a car with no door handles or window buttons.
The latest? Saints safety Usama Young was arrested Monday for reckless operation of a motor vehicle and flight from an officer using a motor vehicle.
“They got behind him, they put on the lights and sirens and he went about a half-mile before he pulled over,” Harahan, Louisiana police chief Peter Dale told the New Orleans Times-Picayune regarding the flight charge. “He didn’t give them any trouble. He was cooperative.”
Young also was booked on a “municipal traffic attachment,” which arises from a December 18 ticket for parking in a handicapped parking space.
Young was released from jail after posting $7,500 bond.
The third-year defender appeared in 15 games last season, starting two of them. He is currently listed as the second-string free safety, behind Darren Sharper.
