Report: Titus Young's ex-girlfriend gets restraining order against him
The mother of Titus Young's 8-month-old son has been granted a temporary restraining order against Young. According to the restraining order request, Young's ex-girlfriend alleges that he would say things like, "I understand why O.J. killed his wife."
The problems continue to pile up for former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young. Not only has the 23-year-old been arrested four different times since May 4, but now his ex-girlfriend has been granted a temporary restraining against him, according to the (Riverside, Calif.) Press Enterprise.
The ex-girlfriend, who is the mother of Young's 8-month-old son, claims that Young has been threatening and harassing her at her home in Moreno Valley, Calif.
"He would say things like, 'I understand why O.J. killed his wife,'" the restraining order request alleges. "He got mad and yelled at my neighbors and tried to fight multiple people that he doesn't even know."
After Young's most recent arrest on May 10, his father Richard told the Detroit News that he believed a brain disorder was causing Titus' problems, "He's not dealing with it the way he should be," Richard Young said. "If the judge gives him a court order, then maybe he'll get the help he needs."
The ex-girlfriend's restraining order request, originally filed on May 8, echoes Richard Young's thoughts.
"Titus Young Sr. has been clinically diagnosed with a mental disorder and I am afraid of what he is capable of doing," the request reads. "He also has been in a mental help facility more than once and still believes that he does not have a problem."
The restraining order requires that Young stay at least 100 yards away from his ex-girlfriend at all times. That shouldn't be an immediate problem. As of Thursday evening, Young is still in jail in Santa Ana, Calif. facing a $25,000 bond, according to jail records.
