This has to be some sort of record. Titus Young was arrested twice in the same day last weekend, the first time being for DUI suspicion and the second for then breaking into the impound to steal back his own car that he was driving when he got arrested for the original crime. As bad as it gets? Unfortunately, no. This most recent weekend, Young was arrested again. This time for allegedly breaking into a house in San Clemente, CA. As crazy/humorous as getting arrested three times in one week is, this dude is obviously going through something and I certainly hope he gets it figured out.
Looks like these athletes are having a pretty good/bad Memorial Day Weekend recently. First we cover J.R. Smith and now the Lions’ Fairley was arrested for a DUI and trying to elude the Police. Here’s some more details from TheBigLead.com.
Defensive lineman Nick Fairley of the Detroit Lions was arrested this morning for driving under the influence and attempting to elude police. Alabama State Troopers picked up Fairley around 3:30 this morning around the corner form his mother’s house. This is the second time this offseason that Fairley has been in trouble in his home state. In April, Fairley was arrested for possession of marijuana. _ Source
