Someone trashed Titus Young’s house

Lions receiver Titus Young has had an eventful offseason for more reasons than one.

We knew Young had recently returned to Organized Team Activities and apologized for sucker punching teammate Louis Delmas, which resulted in the team sending him home for about a week. What we didn’t know is the home Young was sent back to had previously been trashed by someone who broke in and broke things.

The Detroit Free Press reports that Young’s house in Canton, Michigan, was severely damaged in February when someone broke in and smashed things with baseball bats. Three TVs and the SUV in his garage were among the big-ticket items damaged, and smaller items including a coffee table, lamp and clock were destroyed. Nothing was stolen.

“You can infer that that kind of thing might indicate somebody that was angry or hostile toward whoever lived there,” Canton Detective Sgt. Dave Schreiner said. “Of course we’re speculating, but burglaries don’t usually occur where somebody breaks in to steal stuff and in so doing does a great amount of damage. That’s going to make noise and draw attention, so it was somewhat out of the ordinary for all the damage that was done there.”

A neighbor who heard things breaking called the police, and Young came home while the police where at his house surveying the damage. Young told police he thinks the damage might have been done by a cousin he had a falling out with, but he also said he wouldn’t want that cousin prosecuted. Police said Young was cooperative and polite with them, but that Young did not return phone calls from officers or fill out paperwork they need to proceed with their investigation, so they closed the case.

  1. Gotta get away from your roots now if they’re that bad. Yikes. I was thinking an ex-gf at first, but a family member who may have been denied some kind of hand out is worse. No wonder dude is stressed out.

  2. Nothing says young and stupid like having 3 TV’s after only having been in the league a whole year so far.

    In fairness, He’s probably gotta have one in each room to stay up to date with which Detroit Lions member is trouble with the law at all times.

  3. “You can infer that that kind of thing might indicate somebody that was angry or hostile toward whoever lived there,”

    This cop is a genius.

  4. “Nothing says young and stupid like having 3 TV’s after only having been in the league a whole year so far.”

    Yeah lets see: TV in the living room, TV in the bedroom, TV in the guest bedroom or kitchen? Yeah that sounds totally unreasonable.

    Really, having 3 tv’s is an extravagant purchase?
    have you seen how much the cost of an HDTV has fallen is recent years?

    Look, I fully admit 95% of nfl players blow their money on absurd stuff, but I’m 31 years old and make a fraction of what titus young does and I have a 42 inch plasma in my living room, a 52 inch lcd in my basement, and a 22 inch lcd in my bedroom, and they no where near put me in the poor house.

    lol… How pathetic your life must be when the thought someone who makes six figures and owns 3 TV’s is considered excessive!SMH

  11. “You can infer that that kind of thing might indicate somebody that was angry or hostile toward whoever lived there,” Canton Detective Sgt. Dave Schreiner said.

    What you failed to mention is that after this statement, Young sucker punched David!

  12. “Young did not return phone calls from officers or fill out paperwork they need to proceed with their investigation, so they closed the case.”

    You know what that means…. He’s gonna handle this on the street.

  13. Head-stompings are a whole lot easier and more efficient.

    More personal, too.

    They say, in effect, “I really hate you, but I also respect you enough to take it out on you personally — not just your belongings.”
