A day before former Lions receiver Titus Young was to appear in court for a hearing regarding four felony counts, he got arrested for another felony.

According to the Detroit Free Press, Young was arrested on July 9 and charged with battery with serious bodily injury and was being held at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles. He was also charged with four misdemeanor counts of battery of school, park or hospital property. Bail was set at $105,000, the Free Press said.

The Los Angeles sheriff's department wouldn't give the Free Press details of the arrest.

Young's promising NFL career fell apart due to him acting out within the team, such as purposely lining up in the wrong place, and getting in trouble off the field. He was arrested three times in one week during May of 2013 on DUI charges, felony burglary and assaulting a police officer, and was facing 11 charges in all. That trial was delayed while Young got treatment. He was scheduled to make an appearance for a pretrial hearing on those counts.

Now Young faces even more legal troubles, as his sad story continues to get worse.
