Vince Young Cited in Dallas Strip Club Assault

UPDATE: Dallas' CBS TV affiliate reports Young was issued a Class C assault citation, which is punishable by a fine of up to $500, after police reviewed a tape of the incident (see it after the jump) and interviewed witnesses.

UPDATE 2: Young reportedly went off after a man threw a Horns Down sign, dissing Young's Texas college team.

UPDATE 3: NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said via Twitter that the league "will look into" the incident.

No, Vince Young, this is not the way you go about rehabilitating your career:
⇥Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young is the prime suspect in a Saturday night assault at a Dallas strip club that left an individual with bodily injury, an official with the Dallas Police Department said Sunday.⇥⇥

⇥No warrant has been issued, but police say Young is the prime suspect. The altercation allegedly broke out after words were exchanged at Club Onyx on 10557 Wire Way. Police believe Young left the scene before officers arrived, a DPD official said.⇥⇥

There's also, if you're inclined to believe random tweets, this mention of Young being in a fight at that club (SFW, but it's the front page of a website for a strip club) from early Sunday morning. In any case, it would seem that the Titans quarterback has some explaining to do.


ESPN the Magazine ran a story on Young vacationing in the Caribbean last month, and it seemed like the once-troubled star had put his life back together after a Pro Bowl campaign in 2009. An assault charge would not be a continuation of that pattern.
