Tigers Delmon Young busted in Manhattan hotel brawl

Detroit Tigers big-hitting Delmon Young was arrested early this morning after he allegedly assaulted a man in front of a mid-town Manhattan hotel reports The New York Post.

Police were called to the Hilton Hotel on Sixth Avenue around 2:40 a.m., after Young— whose team is in the city to play the New York Yankees starting tonight— pushed the unidentified man to the ground, sources told The Post.

The powerful Young was "highly intoxicated," according to the sources, and had to be taken to a hospital to detox before being moved to a police precinct.

The victim was treated at the scene for scratches.

Young, who has had problems with his temper in the past, was charged with assault in the third degree and is in custody while awaiting arraignment.

While playing for the Triple-A Durham Bulls in the minor leagues, Young once threw a bat at an umpire.

The outfielder was drafted in 2003 and played for the Tampa Bay Rays before going to the Minnesota Twins in 2008.  He was traded to the Tigers last August.

In last season's ALDS, Young hit a home-run off Yankees hurler CC Sabathia in his first playoff at-bat.

Young has struggled so far this season, hitting .242, with 1 home run and 5 RBIs.

The Tigers are in town to face the Yankees in the Bronx for a three-game series.


  1. another spoiled, rich millionaire that can't hold his liquor. yet people still flock to see him and pay him.

  2. amazing how this story doesn't include the hate crime charge

  3. hate crime harassment charge after police said he got into a fight with a group of men and yelled anti-Semitic epithets. and all will be forgiven and fogot

  4. The media crucified Mell Gibson. That is the liber media for you. Another racist black man gets a free pass. If he was any other ethnicity it would have been all over the news.

    1. Don't worry a lot of white hate crimes get passes too. The difference is, if it is a black person, instantly it's a hate crime; But of course, if it is white, it has to be investigate to see if it is or not. America has a two party system, justice is indeed blind. We should all live under the same rules, then there would be no problems, race wise that is. I truly hope the day will come that a man gets judged by deed and not by color...

  5. Why is a ballplayer who hit an umpire in the chest with a bat even playing? And being paid $6mil+ per year? Come on!

  6. Because He's black .

  7. leave the brother alone. dont be mad just because he makes more than you.

  8. there is affirmative action in MLB now too because blacks cant hit the curve ball and cant field worth a shit( michael Jordon).Damn white crackers ,i mean jews ,are holding them back again

    still they pay this idiot 6 million. send him back to the ghetto for some crack and be gone with him.
