TMZ Sports is reporting that former Lions WR Titus Young was arrested in Los Angeles for assault with a deadly weapon after allegedly beating up a guy in a street fight.

According to the report obtained by TMZ, Young caused “serious bodily injury” to the man in the fight that occurred back on January 30th.

TMZ adds that if Young were to be convicted for this charge, could face a four-year prison sentence.

Young, 26, was a former second-round pick of the Lions back in 2011. He lasted just two years with the team before he was ultimately waived in February of 2013.
