He was finally freed Thursday night, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free-Press, after paying 10 percent of his $50,000 bond. According to Birkett, however, no one currently knows Young's whereabouts.
Young spent 27 days in jail and now faces his next court date on June 24. Though getting out of jail is good news, there's no certainty that he's locked in with a support group; his parents didn't bail him out in order to get him "anchored."

There's a good school of thought there, in that enabling Young wouldn't do a whole lot of good at this stage.
Young's case is a sad one, because he's an immensely talented player who's struggled to mature in the NFL. His father claimed that Young suffers from a brain disorder and needs help.
The latter is obvious: Young faces 11 counts of burglary, attempted burglary and assault on police officers and could do up to 10 years in prison for those crimes, with another six months possible for two counts of trespassing. Hopefully, now that Young is out of jail he can get the help he needs.
