The strange odyssey of former Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young took another odd detour Friday when Young, who has been jailed since May 11, learned he would be charged with three new counts, bringing his total to 11. The three new counts were mentioned Friday at a pretrial hearing in Orange County Superior Court, where Young made an appearance marked by his silence and stoicism. The exact nature of the counts was not available immediately, because they had not been filed yet. But Young's attorney, Altus W. Hudson II, said they relate to an alleged attempted burglary the night of May 11. Young already faces charges of breaking into a house that night. Of the eight previous charges, three are felonies. He also faces possible prosecution for a DUI arrest in nearby Riverside County. Young, released by the Lions after last season, was arrested three times in southern California in a week, culminating in his jailing May 11. Judge Andre Manssourian said that, considering the new charges, a higher bail was warranted. He increased it from $25,000 to $50,000. "Mr. Young poses a danger to the community," Manssourian said. Whatever the bail amount, Young and his family don't seem inclined to get Young, who has been described by his father and others as having mental health issues, released from custody.
