SAN CLEMENTE (AP) — Authorities say former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young has been arrested in California for the third time in a week.

Orange County Sheriff’s spokesman Lt. Joe Balicki says the 23-year-old Young was arrested late Friday in San Clemente for allegedly breaking into a home.

Balicki says Young fought with deputies after a foot chase.

He has been charged with attempted burglary, assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. He is in custody Sunday on $75,000 bail.

Last Sunday, Young was arrested in Riverside County on suspicion of driving under the influence then arrested again the same day for allegedly trying to take his car from a tow yard.

The Lions drafted Young in 2011, but released him in February after a drop in productivity and disputes with teammates.
