The Detroit Tigers haven’t received much good news lately, as the team has stumbled with four straight losses to relinquish their early AL Central lead.
Things went from bad to worse on Friday when starting left fielder Delmon Young was arrested after he attacked a man outside a Midtown hotel, the New York Post reports.
The incident occurred around 2:40 a.m. ET, police told the Post, after Young started shouting anti-Semitic expletives at a man who was asking for change. He then got into an argument with a group of people before he and one of the group members engaged in a physical confrontation.
The victim suffered scratches from the fight, but did not have to go to the hospital, according to the report. Young, meanwhile, has been charged with aggravated harassment, with the possibility of a hate crime charge being added on.
Young, a former No. 1 pick in the 2003 MLB Draft, is hitting .242 with one homer in 18 games for Detroit.
