Detroit Tigers slugger Delmon Young went on a drunken, anti-Semetic rampage outside a posh Manhattan hotel early this morning shouting F-ing Jews to a group of tourists before throwing one to the ground, sources said.
The $6.5 million outfielder was so drunk that he had to be hospitalized after his arrest.
Young directed his rage on four men who were in town for a bachelor party when he saw them talking to a yarmulke-and-Star of David-wearing pan handler outside the Hilton Hotel on Sixth Avenue at 2:40 a.m.
He allegedly shouted You bunch of F-ing Jews! and pushed the first member of the group that he could get his hands on Jason Shank, a business man from Schaumburg Ill, sources said.

Too old to be Obama’s son. Maybe cousin, or illegitimate younger brother. Who knows.
He should be arrested for assault but hate speech is an Orwellian construct better left to fiction writers than legislators. The answer to his epithet is a chuckle concurrent with a ‘what a dumb fu5k’.
America is more divided now than at any time that I can remember in my lifetime. Thanks Barry you POS!!! Freakin’ commies! ....divided we fall.
Paging Mel Gibson...Mr. MEL GIBSON...please pick-up the courtesy phone in the lobby!
“America is more divided now than at any time that I can remember in my lifetime. Thanks Barry you POS!!! Freakin commies! ....divided we fall.”
I agree. Maybe this is part of the big plan to bring down this country.
For that kind of money I could refrain from being a drunken idiot even if I had to hire bodyguards to keep myself in line.
Tigers are winning tonight without him and Girardi has just been tossed.
I refuse to call this kind of crap a hate crime. Its a drunk getting in a fight.
I don't believe in "hate crimes" or "thought crimes". Sports radio in Detroit is all over this as a "hate crime".
Personally, I think Delmon let his team down. There is no way he should be out at 3am, drunk, the night before a game. And, he conducted himself in such a manner that got him arrested and unavailable for tonight's game. Considering his record of assaulting umpires in the minor leagues, the term "head case" comes to mind. The Tigers do not tolerate head cases. Poor fielding outfielders that are hitting .242 are a dime a dozen. I wouldn't be surprised to see him gone.
If they keep him, he is going to have to do a lot of explaining to the Jewish portion of the fan base, and the rest of us.
I don’t drink but for that kind of money I could stay sober during the season. Dimitri Young got the boot from the Tigers for a drunken fight with his wife.
“Thanks Barry you POS!!!”
You are right. Only in Obama’s Amerikkka can orthodox jews be reduced to homeless beggars.
I swear this story is so confusing.
I lived in NYC for most of my life, right in Manhattan, the big Apple, during the worst of the pre-Giuliani years.
I have never, IN MY LIFE, seen a homeless person wearing a yamulke.
The Just-us Brothas will be ALL over this! (Trust me.)
More justice for Trayvon .......
Blacks don’t like Jews? Who knew?
Sometimes I wonder if the way to fight all this nuttiness is to call everything a hate crime and for everyone to sign up for every public bennie for which they qualify - bring the system to its extreme gridlock conclusion.
Should have bought a bag of Skittles ....
How was he even able to walk? If he had to be hospitalized for being THAT drunk then he could’ve been on the verge of death.
“I refuse to call this kind of crap a hate crime. Its a drunk getting in a fight.”
IMHO when he was drunk his pure inner emotions were let free. I believe he was just being his real self with no restaints.
Yeah, it should be drunk and disorderly, but the "hate-crime element" is unconstitutional. One of these days, someone will challenge thought crimes as a crime on constitutional grounds.
