Tigers’s Young Yet to Receive a Plea Deal

Young with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays in 2007.Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young, who was accused of making anti-Semitic remarks outside a Manhattan hotel earlier this year, has yet to receive a plea deal from prosecutors, according to an AP report. Young was updated on his misdemeanor hate-crime harassment suit, currently being evaluated in a Manhattan court, on Tuesday, and told the prosecution had yet to reach a deal.

Young was arrested on charges he made anti-Semitic statements, fought with a group of tourists, and even pinned one to the ground. Young was with the Tigers in New York as the team was playing the Yankees.
The athlete’s lawyer says the outfielder was provoked by the words of the individuals he fought with. Young has expressed remorse for his actions.

He is currently free on $5000 bond, and scheduled to make another court appearance on August 2.
