PLAYERS: Titus Young

Via Helmet2Helmet:

If Titus Young is truly on the road to recovery, he’s got an interesting way of showing it.

The troubled free agent receiver, who’s been arrested four times this month (twice in a 15-hour span), appeared in a California court Friday and learned he’d be facing a total of 11 criminal charges, including attempted burglary.

His reaction? Stoicism.

According to USA Today, Young, dressed in an orange jumpsuit and appearing inside a protective cage, completely ignored Judge Andre Manssourian during proceedings.

“Good morning, sir.”

No reply.

“Can you hear me?”

No reply.

“Are you Titus Demetrius Young?”

No reply.

Young’s attorney, Altus W. Hudson II, maintains that his client was simply exercising his right to remain silent. Young’s father, Richard, called out to his son, who he claims is suffering from a brain disorder. But he, too, received no reply. His family members refused to comment after the hearing.

The silence apparently did little to help Young’s case. Judge Manssourian raised his bail from $25,000 to $50,000, claiming, “Mr. Young poses a danger to the community.”

Young’s next court appearance is scheduled for June 4, with a preliminary hearing set for June 6. In the meantime, Hudson recommends the 23-year-old to stay behind bars.

“Uh, huh,” the attorney said when asked if remaining in incarcerated is in Young’s best interests.

It’s been said too often in recent weeks, but Young has a long way to go before his life — let alone career — is back on the right track.
