Ex-Lion Titus Young out of jail after 27 days

The SportsXchange

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young was released Thursday night from a California jail after spending 27 days in incarceration.

Young's family posted 10 percent of the $50,000 and he now must appear back in court for a pretrial hearing on June 24.

Young, who was arrested multiple times on a number of charges, is struggling with mental illness and needs professional help, his family told the Detroit Free Press.

The 27-year-old Young was arrested on May 11 after he was accused of breaking into a San Clemente, Calif., home.

He faces at least 11 charges including burglary, attempted burglary and assault on police officers. He also has been charged with three felonies, for that incident and another one May 4 when he's accused of stealing candy, water and cigars from a Laguna Hills, Calif., gasoline station.

Young could be sentenced up to 10 years in prison if convicted on those charges.
