Titus Young doesn't appear in court


Titus Young was suspended multiple times in 2008, his sophomore season at Boise State, due to conduct detrimental to the team. He had no further issues as a Bronco, became the program's all-time leader in receiving yards and made 25 touchdown receptions, including this one against Toledo in 2010.

Former Boise State and Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young did not show up for his court hearing Monday morning in Orange County, Calif., but the judge apparently accepted his attorney's explanation, USA Today reported.

Young faces 11 charges, including four felonies.

Attorney Altus W. Hudson II spoke to the judge off the record and declined to give details to the media about his absence. "Personal reasons," Hudson told USA Today. "I know where he is, and he is safe."

The judge issued and held a bench warrant. The warrant will be issued if Young fails to make his next court appearance, July 2.
