NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) — A California judge issued an arrest warrant Tuesday for Titus Young after the former Detroit Lions wide receiver missed a fourth court hearing on charges of burglary and attempted burglary.

However, Young's attorney Altus Hudson said he doesn't expect his client to be arrested, saying the court knows his location. He declined to elaborate outside court.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Andre Manssourian issued the $100,000 bench warrant after meeting with Hudson and the district attorney's office in chambers. The judge also revoked Young's bail and accepted a document from the defense under seal.

The 24-year-old former player previously pleaded not guilty to four felonies and seven misdemeanors after authorities say he broke into a San Clemente home on May 10.

That arrest came after erratic behavior that began five days earlier in neighboring Riverside County. He was arrested there for suspicion of driving under the influence and arrested again 15 hours later after authorities said he was caught trying to retrieve his car from a tow yard in Moreno Valley, east of Los Angeles.

He was charged with misdemeanor trespassing in that matter and the case is pending, said John Hall, a spokesman for the Riverside County district attorney's office.
