To add insult to injury after the Seattle Mariners swept the Detroit Tigers, outfielder Delmon Young was arrested last night in New York City. The charges against him are aggregated harassment hate-crime.
Young was standing outside of the teams Manhattan hotel around 2:30 am ET when a group of four tourist from Chicago approached him. First the group had passed by a pan-handler on the street then walked towards the hotel, that is when Young allegedly starting yelling anti Semtic remarks according to police.
An altercation began between a member of the group and Young outside and eventually spilled into the hotel lobby. That's when the police were called. The member of the group sustained a few scratches on his elbow but refused any medical attention.
Police also reported that Young was highly intoxicated. He was taken to Roosevelt Hospital to sober up before he was booked and charged with assault in the third degree.
Young was the number one overall pick of the 2003 draft. In recent years he has rounded into a very productive Major League ball player and played a key role in the Tigers World Series run last season. He arrest however continues an unfortunate trend of behavior issues. In 2006 he faced a 50-game suspension after throwing a bat and striking an umpire in the chest.
The Tigers are in New York to face off with the Yankees and it is almost certain Young will not be in the lineup. He is hitting .242 with a homerun this season in 18 games.
