He was kept out of organized team activities last week after sucker-punching teammate Louis Delmas, and he reportedly displayed an "apathetic attitude" during the offseason workout program. Young has apologized for his behavior and is back at work this week, but more bad news about his offseason keeps spilling out.
Breer: Risky business
According to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press, Young returned to his area condo in early February to find that someone had been broken into it. No items were stolen, but Young's property, including multiple flat-screen television sets and his "high-end" SUV, had sustained damage.
Young had named a potential suspect in the break-in, but police investigating the incident received little cooperation from the receiver and have closed the case without an arrest.
"He did provide us with a name of a possible suspect," Canton Detective Sgt. Dave Schreiner said. "It was a relative who he thought might be angry with him. We did investigate, but we just did not have enough information to charge anybody in the case or bring anybody up on charges, either that person or anyone else. So it remains a whodunit, and without Mr. Young contacting us and helping us to go forward, we opted to close it."
