(CBS) The sad story of former Lions wide receiver Titus Young just keeps getting worse.

Not only has he been arrested four times in the matter of two weeks, Young’s ex-girlfriend recently obtained a restraining order against him after he harassed and threatened her.

“He would say things like, ‘I understand why O.J. killed his wife.’ He says, ‘We’re always gonna be a family and I’m always going to be his,’” the restraining order request states. “He got mad and yelled at my neighbors and tried to fight multiple people that he doesn’t even know.”

Under the conditions of the restraining order, Young must stay at least 100 yards away from the woman, who is also the mother of Young’s 8-month-old son.

“Titus Young Sr. has been clinically diagnosed with a mental disorder and I am afraid of what he is capable of doing,” she wrote in the restraining order request. “He also has been in a mental help facility more than once and still believes that he does not have a problem.”
