04:30 PM ET 05.14 | Titus Young was in good spirits Friday morning. His father, Richard, said he took Titus out for coffee, and Titus was laughing and looked happy. But later that day, when Young told his parents he was going to his car to grab his phone, the former Lions wide receiver drove off instead. "We knew that something had happened to him or he was locked up again," Richard Young told The Detroit News on Monday. "His mind is not capable enough to go out and deal with society because of this situation." Young's father was right. Titus Young was arrested late Friday night for the third time in less than a week. Orange County authorities allege Young broke into a home in San Clemente, Calif., tried to flee, but he was caught and charged with burglary, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest. San Clemente is more than 60 miles away from the Young's home in Los Angeles, where Titus had been living.

I'm sure it's nothing a little Herbal Remedy won't fix :-)

The owner of the home he was attempting to burglarize was in the act of loading his rifle in self defense before Young decided to flee the scene.

Hey Dad...if you know your son is mentally ill; what have you done about it? Same old story with criminals; they're all fine until they get caught...then all of the sudden they have an illness or they were insane at the time of the crime...what a bunch of BS!
