Sources have told the New York Post that Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young was arrested early this morning after he allegedly pushed a man to the ground outside of a New York Hotel.
According to the report from the Post, Young was “highly intoxicated.” The victim reportedly only suffered scratches and was treated at the scene.
Young and the Tigers are in New York City to play a three game series against the Yankees. Detroit is currently in the midst of a four game losing streak, and they have lost six of their last seven games.
The 26-year-old outfielder was once the top overall pick in the MLB draft, but is best known by some for his 2006 minor league incident in which he threw a bat at an umpire after being called out on strikes. Young was suspended 50 games for the incident.
Through 18 games this year Young is hitting .242 with one home run and 15 strikeouts.
