The up and down career of Titans QB Vince Young may be taking a serious hit today, as a report from a Dallas TV station says that Young is the “prime suspect in a a Saturday night assault at a Dallas strip club.”
The assault caused an injury to one person, that according to an official with the Dallas Police Department said Sunday.
While as of now no warrant has been issued for the QB or anyone else, the police said that Young is the prime suspect.
A fight took place after some verbal punches were thrown at the strip club called “Club Onyx”, and police believe Young left the scene before officers arrived, a DPD official said.
Young is coming off a comeback season with the Titans, and unless something drastic happens (like this maybe?!) he is expected to be the starter under center when the season begins for Tennessee in September.
He was the third overall pick in the NFL Draft in 2006. He is known for leading his alma mater, the University of Texas, to a national championship in 2006. He threw for 467 yards in that win against the University of Southern California.
It’s not the first off field issue Young has had while in the NFL. Back in September of 2008, Young left his home without his cell phone. The reasons given were that Young was upset over being booed by fans after throwing a second interception against the visiting Jaguars the previous day and the sprained medial collateral ligament in his left knee suffered four plays after head coach Jeff Fisher prodded him back into the game.
Young postponed a doctor’s examination till the following day. After speaking to members of Young’s family, Fisher called Nashville police. After a four-hour search, they found Young, who agreed to meet with Fisher and police at the team’s training facility.
Vince Young’s agent, Major Adams, told ESPN reporter George Smith that he didn’t know why the story has taken on a life of its own, and stated that the incident was “blown out of proportion” and called any perceived depression or emotional problems suffered by his client “unfounded.” However, Young’s therapist told Fisher that Young mentioned suicide several times before driving away from his home with a gun.
