NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (AP) -- An arrest warrant has been issued for Titus Young after the former Detroit Lions wide receiver missed his fourth court hearing on attempted burglary charges.

An Orange County judge issued the warrant on Tuesday and revoked bail after a meeting in chambers with Young's attorney Altus Hudson.

The lawyer says he doesn't expect his client to be arrested anytime soon, however, and the court knows where Young is staying.

Hudson declined to publicly reveal Young's whereabouts but previously said he was in treatment for an undisclosed condition. His father has said he believes Young has mental issues stemming from a concussion during his 2011 rookie year.

Young is charged with breaking into a San Clemente home in May following a string of erratic behavior that included three arrests in one week.
