Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young ran into more trouble off the field on Friday, when he was arrested for the third time in less than a week.
Young broke into a house in San Clemente, Calif., according to the Orange County Sheriff's Department, and then fled on foot before he was apprehended by police after a struggle.
Young, currently an NFL free agent, was arrested around 11:30 p.m. PDT Friday and charged with bulgary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. Neither Young or the officers were injured, The Detroit News reported.
"There was a brief struggle," Lt Joe Balicki told The News. "He wanted to fight with the deputies. They ended up subduing him."
According to NFL.com, Young was still in custody Sunday. His bail is set at $75,000.
A week earlier, Young was arrested in Moreno Valley, Calif. on suspicion of DUI and released. Fifteen hours later, he was arrested again after he jumped a fence trying to retrieve his impounded car.
Young was waived by the Lions earlier this year after a tumultuous second season in 2012 that included behaviorial issues. He then picked up briefly by the St. Louis Rams before he was released again.
