Titus Young's Friday night was more adventuresome than first believed.
The former Detroit Lions wide receiver was arrested Friday night in San Clemente, Calif., by the Orange County Sheriff's department and charged with two felonies — burglary and assaulting a police officer — and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest. That was revealed Sunday.
It has now been reported by ProFootballTalk.com that Young's black Mustang was involved in two alleged incidents prior to the burglary.
Police had responded to a call that a person was passed out in a black Mustang in a driveway outside a San Clemente home. When the fire department and ambulance arrived the Mustang was leaving and almost hit the ambulance. Police never caught up with the person. Then, two hours later, there were reports of a person driving the same car peering into other cars. The description fit Young. The car, registered to Young, was found but he was not. The car was impounded.
Also on Monday, KTLA reported that the owner of the home that Young broke into later Friday night grabbed his gun and yelled at Young to leave when he heard unusual footsteps on his hardwood floors.
When police arrived on the scene Young was outside. He fled, but the former wide receiver was caught by police. He punched and kicked them, Lt. Joe Balicki of the Orange County Sheriff's Department said on Sunday, before he was brought down and handcuffed.
Young remains in jail on a $75,000 bond. His arraignment is set for Tuesday at Central Jail Court according to the booking report.
Young was arrested twice on May 5 for charges of driving under the influence and then burglary in Moreno Valley, Calif., which is about 70 miles from San Clemente.
The troublesome wide receiver was released by the Lions on Feb. 4.
