There’s a classic line from Dumb and Dumber when Lloyd tells Harry, “Just when I think you couldn’t possibly be any dumber, you go out and do something like this…and TOTALLY redeem yourself!”
Well, when it comes to former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young–it’s safe to say this line fits him perfectly.
As you know, Young has quickly become the laughing stock of the NFL world after he was arrested three times within a week–with the first incident involving a DUI arrest followed by an attempt to break his car out of some. A few days later, Young was arrested again for suspicion of burglary to go along with assault of a police officer and resisting arrest.
Now, it appears Young can add another incident to his resume–giving him four in nine days.
In another twist of the Titus Young case, he was also charged for felony theft at a convenience on May 4. That makes 4 incidents in 9 days.

Even if this incident took place before the other three arrests, it’s still ridiculous for one individual have this many run ins with the law in such a short amount of time. And to make this story even more ridiculous–Young felt the need to steal a bottle of water and candy from a Chevron.
On the 2 burglary charges against Titus Young from May 4, he was charged today for stealing a bottle of water & candy from a Chevron.

A former NFL player can’t chalk up a few bucks for a bottle of water and candy? That’s just ridiculous–let’s hope and pray Young seeks the type of help he desperately needs with the type of month he’s been having so far.
