Young was stopped by the Moreno Valley Police Department at 12:01 a.m. on Sunday after making an illegal left turn in front of a patrol car and arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence. He was booked, received a citation and released from custody.
Just hours later, at 2:22 p.m. that day, police responded to a tow company yard where a man was seen jumping over the fence.
He was arrested for burglary after the police determined Young was trying to steal his own vehicle. He was booked again at the same detention center.
Young was a second-round draft pick by the Lions in 2011 out of Boise State and finished the last season on injured reserve with a bad knee. Young, 23, was released by the team on Feb. 4. Young was claimed off waivers later that month by the St. Louis Rams, but cut a few days later.
