Titus Young’s life continues to spiral out of control as he gets deeper and deeper into troubles. Young is already facing 8 different charges according to Rotoworld, and now he is being accused of domestic violence.

Now the mother of his 9 month old child has filed for, and granted, a temporary restraining order against Young. When he is released from jail in Orange County he won’t be allowed within 100 feet of her.

“He would say things like, ‘I understand why O.J. killed his wife.’ He says, ‘We’re always gonna be a family and I’m always going to be his,’ ” the restraining order request states, according to the Press-Enterprise of California. “He got mad and yelled at my neighbors and tried to fight multiple people that he doesn’t even know.”

Titus Young has had a rough week to say the least. The Detroit Free Press summed it up:

“On Tuesday, Young pleaded not guilty to eight charges stemming from two separate incidents in a seven-day span, including breaking into an Orange County home, assaulting police officers and burglary of a gas station.”

Young is facing up to 7 1/2 years in prison for his charges. On top of that the woman is seeking a permanent restraining order and has a hearing set for May 29th.

“He is not afraid of any authority. He even text me and told me he was king,” the woman wrote in the restraining order, according to the Press-Enterprise. “He used to play for the Detroit Lions and he had many violent problems there. They also could explain (his) unstable mental problem, that he refuses help for.”
