Police say Young was standing outside of the Hilton New York, not far from Times Square. A group of about four Chicago tourists staying there were approached by a panhandler wearing a yarmulke. As the group walked up to the hotel doors, Young started yelling anti-Semitic epithets. Police say it's not clear who he was yelling at, but he got into a tussle with one of the Chicago group, who sustained scratches to his elbows.
Further, a New York Post report states that Young was "highly intoxicated" and had to go to the hospital to sober up before being moved to the jail.
Young, 26, was once suspended for 50 games for throwing his bat at an umpire when in the minors (in 2006) and also bumped an umpire in 2005, but this appears to be the first time his temper has gotten him in trouble off the field -- at least publicly.
