In the span of 15 hours, former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young got himself arrested twice.

The former 2011 second round pick out of Boise State was first arrested Sunday at 12:01 a.m. for suspicion of driving under the influence, then booked by the Moreno Valley Police at the Robert Presley Detention Center.

He was issued a citation and released, but shortly after at 2:22 p.m. Young was again arrested, this time for burglary, according to a report from the Oakland Press.

The alleged burglary took place at a tow company yard, where Young reportedly was seen jumping over a fence in order to take back his black Mustang.

Unfortunately for Young, 23, this is not his first behaviorial issue since entering the NFL. The Lions cut Young on Feb. 4, the first day teams were allowed to make such a move, due in part to his attitude.

He was considered a distraction in the locker room, and last spring punched safety Louis Delmas during an offseason workout, according to reports.

Young also intentionally lined up in the wrong formations during Detroit’s Nov. 18 loss to the Green Bay Packers last season, which resulted in his being sent home by the team. He was eventually allowed back to practice, but an injured knee ultimately ended Young’s season.

All told, Young had been sent home three times in his two season with the Lions. He reportedly did not play in Detroit's final six games of the season, due to his troubles with the coaching staff.

The St. Louis Rams picked Young up off of waivers, but he was released on Feb. 15 after spending a few days with the team.

In two seasons, Young has played in 26 games, starting 17. He was 81 career receptions for 990 yards and 10 touchdowns.
