Coming off a 1-6 home stand, the Detroit Tigers are dealing with more bad news today.
According to a New York Post report, the Tigers' Delmon Young was arrested early Friday morning in New York after he allegedly assaulted a man in front of a Midtown hotel. The Post cites police sources in the story.
The Post reports that police were called to the hotel around 2:40 a.m. after Young pushed the man to the ground. Young was "highly intoxicated," according to the report, and had to be taken to the hospital to sober up before being moved to a police precinct.
The victim suffered scratches on his arm and was treated at the scene, according to the Post report, and Young was charged with assault in the third degree and is in custody while awaiting arraignment.
Young, who was acquired from the Twins in a trade last August, is hitting .242, with one homer and five RBIs this season.
The Tigers open a three-game series at Yankee Stadium on Friday night.
