Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office tweeted at Young, 35, was arrested at 4:31
No further details of the arrest were immediately available.
A Houston native, Young secured his place as one of the greatest quarterbacks in college football history at Guiding Longhorns for the 2005 season championship. In the last match of his college career, Young threw in 267 yards and hurried to 200 extra yards and three touchdowns that Texas beat off No. 1 USC, 41-38. The Longhorn's victory snapped the 34-winning stroke of the trojan.
Young was drafted by the Titans in the 2006 draft NFL, but could not match his success in college. He led the Titans to a 10-6 record and a playoff berth after the 2007 season, but was replaced as the start quarter by Kerry Collins next year.
Young returned to the start job in the middle of the 2009 season and threw more than 1800 meters and 10 touchdowns in 10 starts.
