Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young was released from jail late Thursday night after posting 10 percent of his $50,000 bond, according to The Detroit Free Press‘ Dave Birkett.

Young spent 27 days after being arrested for burglary on May 11 — one of three arrests in the same week.

The 23-year-old’s family declined to bail him out, saying he needed to get “anchored” and find help for his mental problems, according to the report.

Young is due in court on June 24 for a pre-trial hearing.

From the report:

The former Lions receiver has been charged with 11 counts of burglary, attempted burglary and assault on police officers, including three felonies, for that incident and another one May 4 when he’s accused of stealing candy, water and cigars from a Laguna Hills, Calif., gas station.

He faces up to 10 years in prison for those crimes, and another six months on two misdemeanor counts of trespassing in Riverside County, Calif., for trying to steal his car out of an impound lot.

Riverside County prosecutors are still weighing whether to charge Young with a DUI as well.
