Detroit Tigers left fielder Delmon Young went a little psycho last night and ended up getting arrested nn a hate crime assault charge. According to police, Young attacked a group of men and screamed anti-Semitic epithets outside of the Hilton New York.
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.
Police were called, and Young was arrested at 4 a.m. local time at 54th Street and 6th Avenue. He was hospitalized at first because he was believed to be intoxicated.
In another life, it’s fair to say Mel Gibson and Delmon Young are probably twins.
