After being arrested twice in a span of hours, former Detroit Lions second-round pick Titus Young was arrested a third time only days later. This time, he had climbed onto the roof of a house and was looking to break in.
KTLA News-Los Angeles provided the key details on the former Boise State star’s third arrest. They also interviewed both Bill Palttos, the owner of the home Young attempted to break into, as well as Lt. Joe Balicki of the Orange Country Sherrif’s Department.
The video is below, but first, those close to Young are hoping to explain to the nation precisely the gravity of the situation.
Spoke w/ @titusdyoungsr‘s HS coach. Very worried. If Titus doesn’t get help, “he’s going to hurt somebody or somebody’s going to kill him.”

Obviously, this is a serious case of wasted talent in a young man capable of so much more than he is currently up to.
We can only hope that Young receives the proper help and gets his life back on track.
