Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young continues to remind us his NFL career is over.

He's not doing so verbally, but rather through his actions.

David Leon Moore of USA Today reports that Young has been arrested on another felony charge of battery with serious bodily injury.

Greg Risling, a spokesperson for the district attorney's office, said Young was also charged with four counts of battery of school, park or hospital property. Those counts are misdemeanors.

Young was arrested July 9, just one day before he was scheduled to make a pretrial hearing appearance in Newport Beach, Calif., where he is facing four felonies and seven other criminal charges.

Young, 24, was charged in May 2013 with felony burglary and assault – 11 charges in all. Since, two attorneys have sought a series of delays in the legal process while Young received medical treatment.

He is in custody in the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles, with bail set at $105,000.

Young was released by the Lions in February 2013, and then was picked up for a matter of days by the St. Louis Rams before they waived him.

He was charged in May of 2013 with felony burglary and assault charges and was arrested three times within a week. Young later got into trouble and charged with two misdemeanor criminal trespassing charges.

This is sad to see, especially after the recent report that Young was improving and getting his life together.

"Titus is improving," lawyer Brian Hurwitz told USA Today.

"He’s getting better. We hope to know more about the legal case by June 19. But the most important thing right now is Titus’ health and his continued care. In the meantime, I am continuing to talk to the district attorney’s office and am preparing to either resolve the case or fight it."

Even if Young ever gets over his problems and past all of these charges he's facing, it's unlikely Roger Goodell ever lets him back into the NFL.

At this point, seeing Young get his life together would be the best thing that can happen to him.
