Tigers Delmon Young Pleads Guilty To Harassment In NYC

Former Detroit Tigers slugger Delmon Young pleaded guilty to aggravated harassment for shouting an anti-Semitic slur and tackling a man to the ground outside a hotel in New York City last spring.

Young was arrested after he yelled anti-Jewish slurs at a group of tourists, tussling with them and tackling one to the ground in April when the Tigers were in town to play the Yankees. Young apologized to his team and was suspended without pay for seven days by Major League Baseball.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and was ordered to complete 10 days of community service and enroll in a program at the Museum of Tolerance.  Young is currently a free agent.
