When Titus Young was released by the St. Louis Rams just 10 days after being claimed off waivers in February, it was natural to wonder if the wide receiver's NFL career might be over

Now there are two more reasons to believe so.

Young was arrested twice in 15 hours by the Moreno Valley Police Department in Southern California on Sunday, according to a police report obtained by the Oakland Press.

Young was arrested on suspicion of DUI early Sunday morning. Hours after he was released from the detention center Sunday afternoon, police responded to a call about a man jumping over the fence of a tow company yard. It turns out it was Young looking for his black Mustang that was towed following his DUI arrest.

Officers then arrested Young again, this time on a burglary charge, when it was determined he was trying to abscond with his own vehicle.

Should Young find himself in the hoosegow one more time this week, he can match former New York Jets cornerback Cliff Harris' three arrests in nine days.

If not for previous reports suggesting Young has battled serious mental and emotional issues, this story literally would be incredible. It reads like a rejected film script.

The incident is the latest sign that Young is detached from reality. If he ever gets another shot in the NFL, it will be because he finally conceded to seek professional help after repeatedly denying the Detroit Lions' requests to do so in 2012.

He has so much ability, yet he lets it all go to waste with his awful decision making both on and off the field.

Well, at least now he can kick off his hip-hop career. His first song can be about how he tried to steal his own car back and got busted. "Can't C me" indeed.....

I think this young man has a few synapses not firing quite right upstairs. He's 23 and needs help before it gets way out of control.

The hits just keep on coming

The problems continue to pile up for former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young. Not only has the 23-year-old been arrested four different times since May 4, but now his ex-girlfriend has been granted a temporary restraining against him, according to the (Riverside, Calif.) Press Enterprise.

The ex-girlfriend, who is the mother of Young's 8-month-old son, claims that Young has been threatening and harassing her at her home in Moreno Valley, Calif.

"He would say things like, 'I understand why O.J. killed his wife,'" the restraining order request alleges
