Former Boise State and Detroit Lions receiver Titus Young was arrested twice in 15 hours, according to a police report obtained by the Oakland (Mich.) Press.

Young, 23, was arrested after police saw him drive his Ford Mustang toward oncoming traffic and make an illegal left turn in Southern California. The Moreno Valley Police Department charged him for suspicion of driving under the influence early Sunday morning. He was issued a citation and later released.

At 2:22 p.m. Sunday, officers responded to a local tow yard after a man was seen climbing over a fence. The man was Young, who said he was looking for his impounded black Mustang. Young was charged with burglary and booked again at the same detention center.

The Lions selected Young in the second round of the 2011 NFL Draft, but he was released in February after being disciplined multiple times last season. He was claimed off waivers by the St. Louis Rams, but was released 10 days later.
