Titus Young, the former Lions receiver who was in jail for four weeks after multiple arrests on a slew of charges, has been released.
The Orange County Jail’s website says Young was released after bond was posted.
Young’s family, friends and lawyer have all said he is struggling with mental illness and needs professional help. His attorney said at a hearing this week that Young was waiting to see a psychiatrist.
Here’s hoping that Young has, in fact, seen a psychiatrist and will continue to do so. It’s become clear in the last few months that Young’s problems go far beyond just being a bad teammate in Detroit. He’s a troubled young man who needs help to get his life on track, regardless of whether or not he has any future in the NFL.
Young is facing charges including drunk driving, assaulting a police officer, trespassing and burglary. He is expected to appear in court on July 2.
