Celona adds that the cops were called to the hotel around 2:40 a.m. after Young pushed a man to the ground. Apparently Young was “highly intoxicated” and “and had to be taken to the hospital to sober up before being moved to a police precinct.”
Young’s victim suffered scratches on his arms and was treated at the scene. The outfielder was charged with assault in the third degree and is in custody while awaiting arraignment adds Celona.
The 26-years old outfielder is hitting .242/.311/.333 with 1 HR, 5 RBI’s and a 77 OPS+ in 66 AB’s with the Tigers this season.
