Young arrested twice in 15-hour span


Former Boise State wide receiver Titus Young was arrested twice in a 15-hour time span on Sunday in California, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department. 

According to a police report, Young was arrested just after midnight on Sunday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence.  He was booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in southern California, and later issued a citation and released from custody. 

Hours later, at 2:22 p.m., police responded to a call from an impound yard and found Young inside looking for his black Mustang, which had been towed and impounded when he was arrested earlier that day.  He had climbed the fence to get into the yard.  Police arrested Young a second time for burglary and once again booked him at the same detention center. 

Young has had a rough couple of months recently.  He was released by the Detroit Lions in February, only to be claimed by the St. Louis Rams.  The Rams released Young a few days later, and he currently is not on an NFL team. 

Young was a second-round draft pick in 2011.

Here is the police report from the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department:

On May 5, 2013, at 12:01 AM, an officer with the Moreno Valley Police Department conducted a traffic stop on black mustang after the driver drove into oncoming traffic, making an illegal left turn directly in front of the patrol car.   The officer initiated a traffic enforcement stop at the intersection of Perris boulevard and Cottonwood Avenue.  The driver, later identified as Titus Young, a 23-year-old resident of Los Angeles, was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence.  He was booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center. He was later issued a citation and released from custody.

At 2:22 PM, that same day, officers from the Moreno Valley Police Department responded to a tow company yard in the 17000 block of Kitching after an adult male was seen jumping over the fence into the storage area of the tow company.  The male was located by responding officers and later identified as Titus Young.  Further investigation determined Young was attempting to take his vehicle, which had been towed and stored after his arrest for driving under the influence.  Young was arrested and booked at the Robert Presley Detention Center for burglary.
