Detroit Tigers big-hitting Delmon Young was arrested early this morning after he allegedly assaulted a man in front of a mid-town Manhattan hotel reports The New York Post.

Police were called to the Hilton Hotel on Sixth Avenue around 2:40 a.m., after Young— whose team is in the city to play the New York Yankees starting tonight— pushed the unidentified man to the ground, sources told The Post.

The powerful Young was "highly intoxicated," according to the sources, and had to be taken to a hospital to detox before being moved to a police precinct.


The victim was treated at the scene for scratches.

Young, who has had problems with his temper in the past, was charged with assault in the third degree and is in custody while awaiting arraignment.

While playing for the Triple-A Durham Bulls in the minor leagues, Young once threw a bat at an umpire.

The outfielder was drafted in 2003 and played for the Tampa Bay Rays before going to the Minnesota Twins in 2008.  He was traded to the Tigers last August.

In last season's ALDS, Young hit a home-run off Yankees hurler CC Sabathia in his first playoff at-bat.

Young has struggled so far this season, hitting .242, with 1 home run and 5 RBIs.

The Tigers are in town to face the Yankees in the Bronx for a three-game series.
