Former NFL WR Titus Young Sentenced To 4 Years In Prison In Assault Case

Carolina Panthers v Detroit Lions

Former NFL WR Titus Young is going away for a long time.

The former Detroit Lions wideout was sentenced to four years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of felony battery causing serious bodily injury, according to TMZ Sports.

“Ex-NFL wide receiver Titus Young just got hit with a 4 YEAR PRISON SENTENCE stemming from a crazy 2016 street fight, TMZ Sports has learned.

As we previously reported, the former Detroit Lions prodigy (a 2nd round pick in 2011) was arrested in L.A. after ducking out of a court-ordered mental facility and then beating up his neighbor on January 30.

According to court records, Young recently pled no contest to 1 count of felony battery causing serious bodily injury … and was sentenced to four years in state prison.

Jail records show he’s been locked up in county jail since August.”

Young spent two seasons with the Detroit Lions.
