Titus Young, a former NFL player, was arrested twice in one day in Moreno Valley - first on suspicion of driving under the influence, and then hours later for trying to take his car from a tow yard.

Young, 23, was arrested early Sunday after authorities observed his Ford Mustang driving toward oncoming traffic and make an illegal left turn in front of a deputy's cruiser. The Los Angeles resident was arrested, cited and released on his own recognizance.

About 14 hours later, officers received a report of a man jumping over the fence of a tow company. Young was arrested again and booked on suspicion of burglary. He was released after posting $5,000 bail.

Young was drafted by the Detroit Lions out of Boise State in 2011, but he was released in February after a drop in productivity and disputes with teammates.
