NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Titus Young is expected in court for a pre-trial hearing related to an 11-count criminal case filed earlier this year.

The hearing Tuesday in an attempted burglary case comes after Young was a no-show at an earlier hearing.

The 24-year-old former NFL player faces four felonies and seven misdemeanors stemming from a May 10 attempted burglary in San Clemente that ended in a scuffle with two police officers.

In another case, prosecutors in neighboring Riverside County have charged the 24-year-old with trespassing.

He was arrested there May 5 on suspicion of driving under the influence and for allegedly trying to steal his car from a tow yard.

Young, a second-round pick out of Boise State in 2011, had 990 yards and 10 touchdowns over two seasons.
