Young was cut by the Rams on February 14th (10 days after they signed him) and was arrested on May 10th, but according to Young’s high school coach E.C. Robinson, Young thought he was still a member of the team.
Young’s behavior was much more alarming a couple of months later. Robinson said his daughter had to grab Young to keep him from wandering into traffic in front of their house, and the coach said Young didn’t even know the St. Louis Rams had released him 11 days after the Lions did the same thing because of his erratic behavior.
“He shouldn’t be out on the streets,” Robinson said. “The day he left my house, I was scared. I mean, you’ve got a loose cannon out there that could go off anytime.”
Young is still in jail and has been charged with 13 crimes.
