Titus Young Continues Downward Spiral; Ignores Judge in Court

Few people have crashed and burned quite like former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young. What first looked like another case of a football player that got too big for his britches turned into one about a guy that needs help dealing with some mental issues.
