Titus Young misses hearing, no arrest warrant issued

A pre-trial hearing in the case against former Lions wide receiver Titus Young was scheduled for Monday in Newport Beach, California, but Young was not present.

Young, who faces 11 charges ranging from burglary to assault of a police officer after a May arrest, was able to avoid an arrest warrant, however. David Leon Moore of USA Today reports that Superior Court Judge Andre Manssourian declined to immediately issue the warrant after an off the record conversation with Young’s attorney Altus W. Hudson II.

Hudson said that “personal reasons” were to blame for Young’s absence and that his client is still being evaluated by a psychiatrist. The prosecutor said that she felt sure Manssourian would not have handled things this way if he weren’t convinced that there was a good reason for Young’s absence in court on Monday.

Manssourian did issue and hold a bench warrant for $100,000, which would be enforced if Young misses the next scheduled court date on July 2.

  1. Just another reminder of why Martin Mayhew should be fired.
    He only drafts players with character issues or a history of injuries in the first two rounds.
    The Lions problems are not Jim Schwartz’s fault the blame lies squarely with Mayhew.
    Schwartz is merely playing the hand that he’s been dealt.
    Shockingly in this years draft he took a completely unproven player (Ansah) in the first round and a player with a history of knee injuries (Slay) in the second.
    I’m a hardcore, lifelong Lions fan but I don’t allow that to blind me to obvious facts. Mayhew should be gone but Schwartz will be the one who takes the fall if this season doesn’t go well.

  2. I just read somewhere that the Redskins are trying to make a deal with Titus to be their back up QB starting the third game of the season. Has anyone else heard this? I think he would fit in perfectly with the Redskins culture.

  3. Titus was at the club with Aaron Hernandez. Ironically they couldn’t find a 3rd associate that would hang out with them.

  4. This guy has Giants/Cowboys/Eagles written all over him. #Criminalloserfranchises

    Look at your own roster before casting aspersions on others for their “criminal loser franchise” persuasions.

  5. The system will be fortunate if Young does not kill himself or others then himself before this cycle is over.

  6. I really cannot believe that people can be so cruel and uncaring about another human being to continue with your insults and judgment against someone who first of all none of you know, you have no idea the struggles we are facing and to continue to hear such cold comments is beyond me. One day you might have the opportunity to face your own challenges ……
