Delmon Young Arrested in NYC

The Detroit Tigers are currently on a four-game losing streak.  They arrived in New York City last night after getting swept by the Seattle Mariners for their weekend series with the New York Yankees.  The last thing they needed was drama coming into play.  But that's what they got when Delmon Young was arrested last night outside his hotel.  Via Larry Celona at the New York Post:

Detroit Tigers slugger Delmon Young was arrested early this morning after he allegedly assaulted a man in front of a Midtown hotel, police sources told The Post.

Cops were called to the Hilton Hotel on Sixth Avenue around 2:40 a.m. after Young, whose ballclub is in town to play the Yankees tonight, pushed the man to the ground, sources said.

Young, known for his powerhouse arm in the outfield, was "highly intoxicated," sources said, and had to be taken to Roosevelt Hospital to sober up before being moved to a police precinct.

The victim suffered scratches on his arm and was treated at the scene.

Not the best way to head into the weekend if you're Detroit, that's for sure.  NBC's Hardball Talk also noted that this incident comes on the six-year anniversary of Young's most famous spat: throwing his bat at an umpire during a AAA game.

Neither of these things are good looks, Delmon.  Neither is starting the season with a .242 average, one home run, and 5 RBI.
