The Tigers outfielder is in trouble after an alleged assault early Friday morning in New York City.

The Detroit Tigers arrived Thursday in New York City for a weekend series against the Yankees. The availability of outfielder Delmon Young is now questionable after he was arrested early Friday morning for an alleged assault. Larry Cerona of the New York Post:

Detroit Tigers slugger Delmon Young was arrested early this morning after he allegedly assaulted a man in front of a Midtown hotel, police sources told The Post.

Cops were called to the hotel around 2:40 a.m. after Young, whose ballclub is in town to play the Yankees tonight, pushed the man to the ground, sources said.

Young, known for his powerhouse arm in the outfield, was "highly intoxicated," sources said, and had to be taken to the hospital to sober up before being moved to a police precinct.

The man who was assaulted, according to the article, suffered "scratches" and was treated at the scene.

Young had an injury-plagued 2011 and is off to a slow start in 2012, hitting just .242/.311/.333 with one home run in 74 plate appearances.
