Mississippi State junior pitcher Paul Young was arrested Tuesday afternoon on simple assault charges.

Young was taken into custody by campus police at 2:35 p.m. but also practiced with the Diamond Dogs afterwards on Tuesday, according to the Clarion Ledger.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pounder redshirted his initial year at MSU in 2014 while recovering from surgery on his right pitching elbow. Young made two relief appearances last year allowing a run on four walks and two strikeouts in an inning of work.

A native of Milton, Fla., Young spent one season at Central Alabama Community College and was drafted by the Cleveland Indians in the 21st round of the 2013 MLB Draft.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
