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.
