Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young was arrested twice over a 15-hour period on Sunday.
The arrests happened in southern California.

According to police, Young was pulled over at 12:01 a.m. Sunday for making an illegal left turn in Riverside, California.

Young was then arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence, booked by the Moreno Valley Police Department, issued a citation and later released.

Police said at 2:22 p.m. that same afternoon, officers responded to a local tow yard after a man was seen climbing over a fence. The man turned out to be Young, who said he was looking for his impounded black Mustang. Officers arrested Young for burglary.

Young, a second-round draft pick in 2011, was disciplined multiple times last season. The Lions waived Young on Feb. 4.

He was once told to stay away from the Lions facility because he intentionally lined up wrong in a Week 14 loss to the Green Bay Packers.

Young also was sent home by the team on three different occasions -- once for punching a teammate, then twice for repeated insubordinate behavior.
