Not much has been heard from or about former Lions receiver Titus Young in recent months, which is a good thing.
Last year, Young became a one-man crime spree, with multiple incidents and genuine concerns about whether he needed professional assistance. According to the Riverside (Cal.) Press-Enterprise, Young has commenced the process of getting his legal affairs in order.
He pleaded guilty on Friday to one count of disturbing the peace as a result of two arrests occurring on the same day in May 2013. First, he was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. Second, he was arrested for trying to retrieve his impounded car by climbing a fence and taking it.
Young received no jail time or fine; he must pay a $35 court fee.
Young still has 11 other pending charges, including four felony burglary counts. He’s due back in court on March 20.
A second-round pick in 2011, he was waived after two tumultuous seasons. The Rams claimed him on waivers and quickly cut him loose. Young has been out of football ever since.
