WR Titus Young arrested for third time in a week

Oft-troubled wide receiver Titus Young got in trouble with the law again on Friday. He was arrested late that night after allegedly breaking into a home in San Clemente, Calif. He has been charged with burglary, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest. Friday's run-in follows a Sunday in which the former Lions wideout was arrested just after midnight on suspicion of driving under the influence. About 15 hours later, Young was arrested again after breaking into an impound lot and trying to steal his car back. He was charged with burglary.

Fantasy Analysis:

I know we should all be responsible for our own actions, But this is just really sad. If someone in Young's family or someone close to him doesn't help him out soon, I fear the story of Titus Young is going to get much worse before it gets better. Despite this quick series of arrests and his history as an awful teammate, I wouldn't say Young's NFL career is absolutely over. He is only 23 years old and clearly talented. If he can get on the straight and narrow, some desperate team might give him a chance to make the roster. But such a reality is years away.

Titus' father has come out and admitted his son has a medical mental issue. Is there any truth to this ?

Well, it seems obvious that Young has some sort of disorder. And yes, his father said Titus is supposed to be taking medication. This is no longer a football story. For the sake of Titus as a person, I hope he can straighten out.
