Police: Vince Young cited for assault in Dallas

Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young received a misdemeanor

assault citation after getting into a fight at a Dallas strip club

and leaving before authorities arrived early Sunday, police

said.

Surveillance video footage released by police showed the former

University of Texas star and several people talking in a small room

before Young attacked someone in the room. Others tried to break up

the fight.

Young wasn’t at Club Onyx when police responded to a call about

the fight, said Dallas police Lt. Andy Harvey.

Harvey said an investigation led to Young receiving a Class C

assault citation, punishable by a fine up to $500.

Titans spokesman Robbie Bohren said the team was aware of the

incident and had contacted Young. He said the team was still

gathering information. NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said in a tweet

that the league “will look into it.”

Titans coach Jeff Fisher was holding his annual charity softball

game Sunday night in Nashville. Young was not on the early list of

players committed to appear in the game.

The Titans resume on-field sessions Monday.

Young, the No. 3 pick overall in 2006, got his starting job back

last fall when Tennessee started 0-6 and owner Bud Adams put him

back in the lineup. He helped the Titans win eight of their final

10 and heads into his fifth NFL season with a 26-13 record as a

starter.
