Titus Young’s troubled career took another turn for the worst over the weekend when he was arrested twice in the span of about 14 hours.

Young, the former Lions receiver who was released a day after the Super Bowl, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence at 12:01 a.m. Sunday after police stopped him making an illegal left turn, then again at 2:22 p.m. for attempted burglary for allegedly trying to steal his own car out of a California tow yard, Sgt. Lisa McConnell of the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department said.

Young was released after signing a promise to appear on the misdemeanor DUI charge, and it wasn’t clear if he remains in custody on the felony burglary charge, McConnell said.

A phone message left for Young’s father, Richard, was not returned tonight, and Young’s former high school coach, E.C. Robinson, said he hasn’t spoken to Young since late March.
