Young was arrested at about 2:30 a.m. Friday when, reportedly intoxicated, he yelled a series of offensive remarks and allegedly pushed a man to the ground outside the hotel. He was charged with an aggravated aggravated harassment hate crime, a misdemeanor.

Young released a statement the following day apologizing for the incident. “I sincerely regret what happened last night,” he said. “I take this matter very seriously and assure everyone that I will do everything I can to improve myself as a person and player.”
