Ex-Lions receiver Young arrested again in Calif.

SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) -

Authorities say former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been arrested in California for the third time in a week.

Orange County Sheriff's spokesman Lt. Joe Balicki says the 23-year-old Young was arrested late Friday in San Clemente for allegedly breaking into a home.

Balicki says Young fought with deputies after a foot chase.

He has been charged with attempted burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. He is in custody Sunday on $75,000 bail.

Last Sunday, Young was arrested in Riverside County on suspicion of driving under the influence then arrested again the same day for trying to take his car from a tow yard.

The Lions drafted Young in 2011, but released him in February after a drop in productivity and disputes with teammates.
