Titus Young arrested Friday for the third time in the last week

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

It's been a very, very bad week for free-agent wideout Titus Young. Young was arrested twice in the span of 15 hours last weekend, a pretty phenomenal feat in a pretty phenomenally bad way. And now he's been busted for allegedly doing something bad again.

Via the Detroit News, Young was arrested at 11:30 p.m. Friday and charged with breaking into a home in San Clemente, Calif. -- and apparently "wanted to fight with" sheriff's deputies as well.

"There was a brief struggle," Lt. Joe Balicki of the Orange County Sheriff's Department told the News. "He wanted to fight with the deputies. They ended up subduing him."

Young was charged with burglary, resisting arrest, assaulting a police officer and, according to the News, is still in jail while facing a $75,000 bond.

If you're scoring at home, that's three arrests in less than a week.

For a guy who was once a second-round pick, he's now been released by the Lions after just two seasons, picked up and released by the Rams and had one of the more memorably bad offseasons we've seen.

It's quite unlikely anyone's going to take a chance on Young between now and the start of the season, and unless he can get help from somewhere and start to turn things around, he stands a chance of washing out of the NFL completely, just a year removed from many people pegging him as a probable breakout wideout receiver.
