Titus Young, arrested twice in one day

Apparently, former NFL defensive back Cliff Harris and former NFL receiver Titus Young have launched a new competition.

It’s apparently called “let’s see who can get arrested the most times.”

Harris currently leads, with three in nine days.  But Young isn’t far behind, thanks to two arrests that came on the same day.

According to Paula Pasche of the Oakland Press, Young followed a Sunday arrest for suspicion of DUI with a Sunday arrest for attempting to steal his own car from police custody.

Specifically, Young was spotted on Sunday afternoon at a tow yard in Southern California, jumping over the fence in search of his impounded Mustang.  Young was charged with burglary.

A second-round pick of the Lions in 2011, Detroit cut him after a tumultuous 2012 that ended with Young essentially tweeting his way out of town.  The Rams claimed him on waivers, but quickly decided after meeting with Young that he was not “quite there” mentally.

It’s a sad situation, and we hope that Young gets whatever help he needs to turn his life around before it’s too late to turn it around.

  1. Can’t really hate on a mugshot that great.
    His career has got to be some kinda hoax though, right? The whole “talented, but extremely spoiled and self-destructive”-thingie is so cliché.

  2. Thinking he’s better than Megatron? That should be the first indication. And then for anyone that’s seen “Friday”. You got fired on your day off? There is a reason why they give those tests at the combine. Maybe they aren’t the right tests but guys who’s brains just don’t work and have IQ’s of their shoe size have no shot.

  3. What a shame, coming out of college I thought he’d be pretty good, especially lining up with megatron. What a waste.

  4. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that this is NOT the first time Titus Young has jumped the fence at a police impound yard…

  5. Sorry Florio… I think it’s too late already. He is pretty much guaranteeing no team will sign him and I think his prospects outside of football aren’t too good.

  6. Don’t forget, he’s better then Megatron!!! Hahahaha

    He couldn’t be that dumb trying to steal his car back, my guess he was disposing of the drugs in it…

  7. That is AWESOME!!! Twice in one day!! What a loser!! Did he think he would steal his car and they wouldn’t find out?! Haha what a moron

  8. ugh im tired of these fools thinking the NFL needs them or there above the law!!!
    WE ALL KNOW ITS A PRIVILEGE TO BE DRAFTED IN THE NFL 1 or 2 guys dont make a team!!! teams shouldnt waste draft picks on lames like these 2 that get arrested 1-3 times in less then 3-4 weeks its unacceptable, im hoping along with HGH Testing if they dont do it already the NFL NEEDS STRICT Mental & Psychological Testing i dont think interviews at the combine and etc are helping

  9. Come on Titus!!!! I’ve got you and Cliff Harris in a “Triple Arrest” exacta box in Vegas.

  10. You just can’t make this stuff up. So glad he won’t be sabotaging the Lions’ offense this season but sad seeing all that talent wasted. Such is the life of us Lions fans…

  11. I’m not a genius of any kind but seriously dude that’s just stupid. How could he think that would end well? Cut your losses.

  12. This has to make Lions fans feel better. Now its previous obviously, the Lions front office made the right decision releasing this turd.

  13. In other news, this arrest also makes Young a candidate to be resigned by the Lions. Also, a perfect suitor for the Oakland Raiders. We should expect these teams to get into a bidding war for Young’s services

  14. It use to amaze me how dumb this guy is. Now it just makes me sad. At least he put his vertical jump into use outside of football.

  15. holy hell, what happened to this guy? it’s like getting cut turned him into even more of a mess.

  16. “It’s a sad situation, and we hope that Young gets whatever help he needs to turn his life around before it’s too late to turn it around.”

    What does this even mean? The guy is a raging egotistical moron. Why does he need “help”? He’s a disgrace and makes no positive contribution to the human race. Screw him.

  17. You just can’t make this stuff up! If you can’t stay straight when millions is dangled in your face, you have to be a MORON!

  18. This guy blew the perfect set up. Lining up opposite Megatron which would free him up. Guys like Fitzgerald and Tim Brown would have killed for a decent WR opposite of them for the majority of their careers. “The saddest thing in this world is wasted talent”…

  19. i didn’t now he was like this i thought he was a good guy the loins have issues with off field actions almost all of there players got arrested at least once

  20. “It’s a sad situation, and we hope that Young gets whatever help he needs to turn his life around before it’s too late to turn it around.”

    Screw him. Those girls in Cleveland that have been trapped against their will for the last 10 years are deserving of whatever help they can get. Titus Young on the other hand is a pathetic disgrace. I remember the good old days, when a guy like Titus Young was simply called a “jackass” and forgotten about. Apparently these days, we have to treat him like he has a condition that needs curing.

    The world just sucks. And so does Titus Young.

  21. What is the matter with these idiots. They don’t have the common sense God gave a crowbar!

  22. there is a way to strightin these people out send over tebow to help get his life stright if anybody can he can he can do anything

  23. I wonder….

    Do we know for a fact that he was trying to steal his car out of impound? Or… was there something in his car he didn’t want found? What made me think of it was the thought: “No one is stupid enough to think they can steal a car from Police impound…” but then I remembered who we’re dealing with here. Still.. if he’s dumb enough to break INTO impound who’s to say what his motive was?

    Yeah better than megatron my ass!!!
    ________

    He probably will be better at moving the chains, but he is no where near elusive, or as tough to bring down as Megatron.

  25. Life coach? Sorry, jail time and lose your job. Just like you and me. If my priority 1 is to commit a crime after I just got arrested I’m pretty sure I would define myself a criminal. No more “chances” for an idiot who had the biggest chance you could get 3 times.

  26. Narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder? Either way, this dude needs mental health treatment before he hurts someone other than himself.

  27. I can’t wait for the ESPN 30 for 30 Special: The Titus Young Story

    This guy is such a waste of space, yet his level of stupidity is fascinating.

  28. Why is it sad? He’s an idiot and only has himself to blame…stop trying to make excuses for people’s own stupidity. Nothing sad about it.

  29. *On the phone*

    Cliff Harris: Hey Man – you ain’t gonna believe this, but I just got myself into so much trouble…

    Titus Young: How’s that, bro?

    Cliff Harris: Damn, I’ve just been arrested for the third time – in NINE DAYS. Can you believe it?

    TY: That’s some crazy s—, man.

    CH: Yah, man – my name’s gonna be mud with the NFL. So, whassup with you? What did you do today?

    TY: Well…ahem…ahhhh….

  30. This guy is such a waste of talent. He had a real good opportunity in St. Louis with Gibson and Amendola both leaving.. he would’ve had a legit chance at being the Rams’ no.1 WR.. but he screwed that up too. You just can’t fix stupid.

  31. Best Week Ever.!!!!!!! I Heard The Jets Are Looking For Another Act Under The Big Top.!!!!!!!

    ugh im tired of thses fools thinking they can write on PFT or there able to convey there thoughts through structureless sentences and capital letters!!!
    WE ALL KNOW ITS A PRIVILEGE TO RECEIVE PUBLIC EDUCATION 1 or 2 guys don’t understand this part well enough to parody it!!!! taxpayers shouldnt (retroactively) waste their money on lames (?) like these 1 that string 10-12 sentences together with less than 1 periods its unnacceptable, i’m hoping that along with HPV testing if they dont do it already the PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM NEEDS STRICT Social skills & Basic Competence Testing i dont think interviews when applying for a job and etc are helpful (I wonder why?)

  33. I actually did that once. Got my own car back from the tow yard. They kept calling me to come get my car back. I kept telling them I didn’t know what they were talking about,as my car was in the driveway.

  34. Can u blame him he’s out of work. N he blew his money on the mustang and the tshirts saying I’m better then megaton

    Dude would fit in nicely with bengals.

    No. Hitler and Pol Pot are”raging egotistical morons”. Homeless drug addicts are “disgraces who make no positive contributions to the human race”, so “why should we help them”? Should we shut down soup kitchens or bury them in mass graves? Because that’s what Hitler and Pol Pot did.

    Titus Young is an idiot, but he’s destroying his own life; not mocking someone who’s made worse decisions than he has. Really, the only people who don’t deserve help are those who would rather laugh at other’s misery than extend a helping hand. Or, I dunno maybe they (you) are the ones who need help the most.

    For the record, I’m aware that came out kind of churchy, but I’m not religious, I’m just a decent person.

  36. Love it. Only way it could’ve been better is if, upon vaulting over the fence and into the impound lot, Young had fallen through the roof of a porta-potty and landed in the chemical toilet, a la Jesse Pinkman.

  37. I think the lions need to reach out to him and get him some help. Its truly sad and I wish he’d get it together cause he has a little one to take care of. Come on Titus, even tho your football career is definitely over you have to make priorities. Wish he’d clean his act up just as a father and a person, who cares about football at this point. He’s definitely at rock bottom right now

  38. This isn’t Titus Young. This is Marcus Vick.

    Titus is looking more like Marcus, troubled in too many circumstances and soon to be unemployed.

  39. Does anyone remember Lawrence Phillips who was drafted out of Nebraska by the Rams. The man had bookoo talent more than Young…but Young is reminding me of Phillips. Phillips is currently doing a state prison bid for running three kids over after losing a game of pick up football. No b.s.

  40. Only way he is one up on megatron (meh two up) is by absolute stupidity and getting arrested. PFT please don’t make another article about this bum or for everyone’s sake Tim Tebow.

  41. My guess is that both of these guys have already burned through all the money they made and don’t have a dime left. Now after being coddled all the way through ‘college’ for their football skills, the only career they were at all prepared for is gone, they have no skills, no real education, and already have criminal records. The future is not bright.

  42. I don’t see the Titus Young Experience as a sad story. This is not sad – he brought every single bit of it upon himself, with arrogance and no concern for others.

    For a sad story, as many here are aware – look into the story of former New York Giant John Tuggle. Now, *that* is a sad story.

  43. Lions made the right decision. Two years when he’s broke and begging for an NFL paycheck, GMs will let his calls just ring just like they did to TO, Chad Johnson, Tiki, etc.

  44. Why? Why do these idiots get all the talent? How can anyone be as dumb as Titus Young? This guy is just the biggest idiot in the world without an excuse. He doesn’t have any mental defects or disorders. He’s just an arrogant punk who can’t get the fact that the law owns you. You don’t own the law.

    What a waste of a second-round pick

  45. Why is.the.”Days without an arrest” meter set at 9? And should it be “Hours without an arrest” now with these two clowns running amok?

  46. Its so nice, finally for 32 teams to say: No thanks, on a jack azz. This guy had an absolutely 100% blessed and unique life & completely blew it. How this jerk off EVER made it to college (he had to have been passed thru the system) & how he made it to the NFL, is beyond me.

    I love tht no one, not one teams wants this dumb Sh**. Enjoy Mcdonalds Eh Hole

  47. What bothers me is the simplicity of the user comments. The whole Cliff Harris crap was a domino effect and sites (PFT) want to make it a headline b/c there is no news. In reality cops are pigs. Oh, instead let’s talk about marios engagement ring!! Umm, Florio, your a lawyer, so I’m assuming you know NYS law. Why do you have mignions publishing ignorant uninformed comments to influence other weak people? I know why. B/c you have no integrity!!! Prove me wrong!!! You know damn well Mario will get his ring back!!! I can lay out the law and why he will but I feel that’s silly, and I know you do too, yet you allow your mignoions to publish mornonic comments all day long!!!!!!! Douche. Let’s see if this is published. If so, I just hit the 1/10 lotto.

  48. The only chains this guy will be moving are about 3 feet long and go from ankle to ankle.
    Perfect career move for someone with his attitude.

  49. I am not surprised in the least. Anyone watch this guy’s behavior last two years and listen to his mouth?
    Really. Just matter of time………….THAT is why he was not signed to a contract. He is fast though.

  50. This guy is an idiot!

    Your #2 on your team. You have a future HOF’er named megatron playing. Who demands 2-3 on him at all times. So keep your mouth shut and play ball! All that would have done was make his numbers on the field astronomical had he put a solid effort in! But no, he kept talkin out of his mouth and made his exit easy! Other WR’s in the league would love lining up with megatron because of the attention he draws! Doesn’t leave to many DB’s to beat!

    Stafford is a good QB, and you have Megatron on one side. Any wr worth a hill of beans should want to play in Detroit with the attention Megatron draws. Stafford is a good QB and will find you. Stupid on this guys part. If he couldn’t make a good career there with the options he had, his next career will be white castle!

  51. got jammed at the line with the DUI and couldn’t complete his route in the tow yard. Yep, his football career has continued. #HOF

  52. Young seems to have a serious mental disorder that needs immediate treatment.according to his high school coach and his actions the kid need help, and fast.ridiculing him for his bazarre behavior is fine if he is healthy in the head but to do so if he has a mental illness is just not cool.

  53. So much for the predraft interview process. I wonder if other teams noticed something since he did fall out of the 1st round.

    I hope someone gets ahold of this guy and gets him straightened out.

  54. The only thing sad about this is that Titus has a kid. I feel bad for the kid.

  55. For those posters thinking it is a mental illness of some kind, I don’t think stupidity qualifies.

    If so, the entire Viking fan base would be collective disability benefits.

  56. I honestly believe he just has a huge ego, not only the comments about being better the Johnson. To think you wouldn’t be caught trying to steal his own car.

    I don’t have a problem naming a child after yourself and calling them Jr. I do think it takes a special kind of person to do that.

    Then to feel it necessary to put Young Sr. on the back of your jersey at that moment I saw that I knew this guy was a clown.

  57. Sorry, not buying he has a disorder. He was able to perform at a high level through college and even in the pros to some extent. Sick of excuses. He is a mental midget and I feel absolutely zero sympathy for him. His only disorder is that he’s a complete idiot.

  58. Just imagine if he did get to his car..then what?? The 6 o’clock news on a police pursuit?
