Tigers' Young pleads guilty to harassment

The SportsXchange

Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young pleaded guilty Wednesday to aggravated harassment resulting from an incident in New York in April when he shouted anti-Semitic slurs and tackled a person near a hotel.

Young, the Most Valuable Player of the American League Championship Series in October, was sentenced to 10 days of community service and mandatory enrollment in a Museum of Tolerance program, the district attorney's office said. He originally was charged with a hate crime.

After the incident, which occurred while the Tigers were in New York to play the Yankees, Young was suspended without pay for seven games.

If Young successfully completes the program at the museum, he has the option to plead guilty to a reduced charge.
