Former Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young was a no-show Tuesday for a second consecutive court appearance, but again was given an excused absence from an Orange County judge. Young, 23, who allegedly who went on a crime spree in May that led him being arrested three times in a week, is undergoing treatment and that is the reason he has twice failed to appear for hearings in the 11-count criminal case against him, according to his lawyer, Altus W. Hudson II. Superior Court Judge Andre Manssourian met with Hudson and a prosecutor privately for five minutes, then went on the record, saying to Hudson, "I see your client is not behind you." Manssourian said the reason Hudson gave for Young's absence will be considered "confidential and put in a confidential file." Manssourian continued to "hold" a $100,000 bench warrant on Young – meaning Young is not a fugitive but could be subject to arrest if he fails to show up for his next scheduled appearance, a pre-trial hearing set for Aug. 6.
