So you didn't win Wednesday's $360 million Powerball jackpot? Make that you and everyone else. A message early Thursday on the multistate lottery's website said the jackpot has soared to $475 million after no tickets matched the winning numbers in Wednesday night's drawing. The winning numbers drawn Wednesday night: 2, 11, 26, 34, 41 and a Powerball of 32. The next drawing will be held Saturday. Wednesday's jackpot was considered the third largest in Powerball history and the seventh largest overall. A jackpot of $475 million ranks as the second largest for Powerball and third biggest overall. Lottery officials expect jackpot totals of this size to continue to climb in shorter amounts of time, thanks in part to a game redesign in January 2012 that increased the odds of winning some kind of prize, but also lowered the possible number combinations to win the Powerball.

The family of Titus Young was deciding whether to bail him out of jail after the former Detroit Lions receiver pleaded not guilty Tuesday to eight criminal counts in Orange County, Calif., charges that range from burglary to assaulting a police officer and resisting arrest. Young's bail, which had been set at $75,000, was reduced to $25,000 by Superior Court Judge Salvador Sarmiento. Young was still in custody as of 4 p.m. PT on Tuesday. Two charges are new and stem from a May 4 incident in which Young, 23, allegedly stole a bottle of water, some candy and cigars from a Chevron station, Farrah Emami, a spokesperson for the Orange County prosecutor's office, told The Detroit Free Press. Young was arrested three times in one week, including twice in a 15-hour span May 5, when he was first arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence by police in Moreno Valley, Calif. After being released, Young was arrested hours later for allegedly trying to steal his car from an impound lot. That case is pending in Riverside County. A week later, Young was arrested May 10 in San Clemente, Calif., after police said he broke into a home, according to Lt. Joe Balicki of the Orange County Sheriff's Department. When officers arrived at the home, Young fled on foot and fought with officers after a brief pursuit, Balicki said. Young was represented by Los Angeles attorney Altus W. Hudson II. Hudson declined comment on the case, but when asked how Young was holding up, said, "He's OK. He's OK." Hudson said the family was deciding whether to post bail. Young's father, Richard Young, previously said his son sought help recently at outpatient facilities in Texas and in Newport Beach and Malibu, Calif. The family's concern stems from the events of last weekend, when Richard Young said he was visiting with his son until Titus suddenly left in a car and was not seen by his family again until they learned he had been arrested again. The arraignment was conducted via video conference. Several of Young's family members were present, including his father. The family declined to comment, though Hudson said a statement would be forthcoming. Richard Young previously had told The Detroit Free Press that he hopes the run-ins with the law serve as the wake-up call his talented son needs to finally get help for the demons that have been haunting him for some time.
