This one isn’t on the Detroit Lions.

They were sensible enough to realize Titus Young was not worth the trouble.

The former Lions wide receiver was arrested twice in a span of 15 hours by the Moreno Valley (Calif.) Police Department on Sunday, according to Paula Pasch of the Oakland Press.

Young's problems began just after midnight when he made an illegal left turn in front of an officer, resulting in an arrest for suspicion of driving under the influence. Later that day – in the middle of the afternoon – Young was arrested for trying to re-possess his Mustang that had been towed. According to the report, police responded after the tow company reported a man had been spotted jumping over the fence into the compound. This time, Young was arrested for burglary.

So, he got booked twice in one day but it’s no longer a problem for the Lions, who released the former second-round draft pick on Feb. 4 after a series of distractions both on and off the field. Fortunately, he's no longer a headache for general manager Martin Mayhew and coach Jim Schwartz.
