Warrant issued for WR Young
(TSX) — After missing a fourth court hearing, former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young was issued an arrest warrant by a California judge on Tuesday.
Young's attorney, Altus Hudson, met with Orange County Superior Court Judge Andre Manssourian and later said no arrest is expected. The judge issued a $100,000 bench warrant after the meeting with Hudson and the district attorney's office, according to reports.
Hudson said previously that Young is receiving treatment for an undisclosed condition and added that the court knows his whereabouts.
The 24-year-old Young pleaded not guilty to four felonies and seven misdemeanor charges after he was arrested on May 10 in San Clemente, Calif. He missed a hearing on Aug. 6 and again Tuesday.
Young also was arrested in nearby Riverside County on May 5 for suspicion of driving under the influence and again later after he tried to retrieve his car from an impound lot. He was charged with misdemeanor trespassing in that incident.
The Lions' 2011 second-round draft pick was cut by the team in February after a decline in productivity from his rookie season and a series of behavioral incidents that included punching a teammate and a Twitter rant
