Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young was arrested outside of the club's midtown Manhattan hotel after allegedly shoving a man to the ground and making anti-Semitic remarks, police say.
Young was "highly intoxicated," a police source told the New York Post, when the altercation occurred at 2:40 a.m outside the Hilton on Sixth Avenue. The Tigers begin a three-game series at Yankee Stadium on Friday night.

The grace of throwing a bat at an umpire?
From being one the best prospects in the game, having a short revival with the Twins a few years back, and now getting arrested. I realize he has always had character/off the field issues but this is all other levels of shame; he needs help.

Meh, I tend to think this is just part of the broader trend. Also, not the only guy in his family to have a problem with alcohol (not that he necessarily has any more of a problem than a lot of other guys his age).
