Arrest warrant issued for former Lions WR Titus Young
An Orange County Court has issued an arrest warrant for Titus Young after Young missed his fourth consecutive court appearance on Tuesday.
Former Lions wide receiver Titus Young was a no-show in court on Tuesday and that no-show has resulted in a warrant being issued for his arrest, according to USA Today. Tuesday's hearing in Orange County, Calif., marked the fourth consecutive court date that Young has missed.
Despite the warrant, Young's attorney -- Altus Hudson -- doesn't believe Young will be arrested. Hudson told the Associated Press that the court knows Young's location. However, Hudson didn't elaborate on where Young is or why he missed his court appearance.
Hudson has maintained that Young is undergoing psychiatric treatment. Previously, Young's father said his son suffers from a brain disorder and needs professional help.
“When he's around us, his mind comes and goes," Richard Young said. "He can't really defend himself, and I don't want y'all thinking he's a bad person."
Young spent two seasons with the Lions, but was released in February after exhibiting erratic behavior in Detroit. Later in February, Young signed with the Rams, but was released after only a few days with the team.
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.
