Let's face it: Delmon Young has a temper. True, he might not be as bad as your Mike Tyson, or your Barry Bonds, or even your Meta World Peace, but he has a temper. And now that temper has flared in a big way. The New York Post has this report:
Hot-tempered Detroit Tigers slugger Delmon Young was arrested early this morning after he allegedly went on an anti-Semitic tirade and attacked a man in front of a Midtown hotel, police sources told The Post.
A panhandler wearing a yamulke approached a group of people to ask for some change — and that's when Young, who was nearby, started shouting, "F--king Jews! F--king Jews!"
That's when another man and a group of his friends got into a confrontation with Young at about 2:40 a.m. that quickly turned physical along Sixth Avenue, law enforcement sources said.
Young allegedly scratched a 32-year-old during the fracas on East 54th Street, pushing him to the ground in the lobby of the Hilton Hotel.
There is video of the arrest:
Young was apparently highly drunk. Nevertheless, this incident isn't going to go away anytime soon.
