Detroit Tigers outfielder Delmon Young has been suspended without pay for seven days, for making anti-Semitic remarks at a group of men he had an altercation with.

Young was arrested following what has been described as “an alcohol-fueled anti-Semitic rampage in Manhattan.”

The 26-year-old is now facing misdemeanor aggravated harassment charge. If he is convicted, he may be sentence to up to one year in jail.

According to the JTA, the suspension will be imposed retroactively to April 27 – the time of the incident. Young is expected to lose more than $250,000 in wages.

According to the Detroit News, Young will not contest the suspension.
