Delmon Young Arrested For Hate Crime

Detroit Tigers left fielder Delmon Young was arrested early Friday morning on a charge of aggravated harassment as a hate crime after he got into a spat with a group of Chicago tourists, and his status for Friday night's series opener with the New York Yankees is uncertain.

The Associated Press reports that a man wearing a yarmulke approached a group of four Chicago tourists at approximately 1:30 a.m on Friday at Young's hotel, where the Tigers were staying for their series with the Yankees. When the tourists parted ways from the panhandler, Young reportedly shouted anti-Semetic remarks at one of the five people involved in the situation. Though it was not known at whom he was screaming, Young got into a tussle with the tourists, one of whom left with scratches on his elbows.

Young was believed to be intoxicated at the time of the incident, so police initially took him to the hospital. He was later transported to the police station and could face arraignment later.
