Dez Bryant arrested on domestic violence charge

Dez Bryant arrested on domestic violence charge

Off-the-field trouble appears to have found Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant once again.

The DeSoto (Texas) Police Department has confirmed to NFL.com and NFL Network that Bryant was arrested Saturday and charged with misdemeanor domestic violence.

Reached Monday by WFAA.com, Bryant said there had been an incident, but declined to go into further detail.

"I'm good, I'm good," he said.

Bryant's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, had no comment when reached by NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The arrest comes during the tail end of an offseason in which Bryant has managed to remain out of the headlines for non-football issues. Last year, he faced two lawsuits that sought in excess of $800,000 in unpaid bills. There was also an incident at a Dallas mall over low-hanging jeans worn by friends in his group. Bryant later apologized.

Bryant -- the Cowboys' first-round pick in the 2010 draft -- finished with more than 900 yards receiving and nine touchdowns in 2011. He recently raved about his physical conditioning heading into his third season, but any talk of his game has again found its way out of the conversation.



PFT
Fox 4 in Dallas reports that Bryant faces a Class A family violence charge and has already bonded out of jail. No further information is available about what transpired leading to Bryant’s arrest.

Bryant confirmed to WFAA in Dallas that there had been an incident, but he would not go into any details about what the incident was.

“I’m good, I’m good,” Bryant told the TV station.

Bryant is a very talented young receiver who has had some off-field red flags in the past, but none of those past red flags — ranging from NCAA eligibility issues to financial problems — had included an arrest. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who has been one of Bryant’s strongest supporters, will surely be extremely disappointed by this development.

Bryant boasted recently that he’s in phenomenal shape and quicker, stronger and faster than last year. But this is just the latest incident to raise questions about whether a failure to keep his head on straight off the field will prevent him from realizing his potential on the field.

Class A misdemeanor domestic violence is apparently given when there is a sign of physical abuse on the victim.

Stand up guy.

It is not clear to what extent Bryant’s mother was injured, although she did not need to be taken to the hospital. The police report says Bryant slapped his mother’s face with a baseball cap and pulled her hair. Some reports have said the incident between Bryant and his mother began as a fight between Bryant and his half brother, but Smith said he doesn’t know why Bryant and his family were fighting.

“Whatever led to it is really not an issue for us,” Smith said. “We have an injured person. We have a suspect. We’re going to move forward.”

If convicted Bryant could serve up to a year in jail. He could also be facing discipline for violating the NFL’s personal-conduct policy.

But to be fair, imprisoning someone for one year is a ridiculously disproportionate punishment for the crime.

Update:


http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... tting-her/

Police in DeSoto, Texas, said today that Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant grabbed his mother’s hair and hit her before he was arrested and charged with misdemeanor family violence.

“It’s pretty straightforward,” DeSoto Police Captain Ron Smith said, via the Star-Telegram. “He and his mom got in an argument. It’s physical. She got some injuries. We made the arrest.”

It is not clear to what extent Bryant’s mother was injured, although she did not need to be taken to the hospital. The police report says Bryant slapped his mother’s face with a baseball cap and pulled her hair. Some reports have said the incident between Bryant and his mother began as a fight between Bryant and his half brother, but Smith said he doesn’t know why Bryant and his family were fighting.

“Whatever led to it is really not an issue for us,” Smith said. “We have an injured person. We have a suspect. We’re going to move forward.”

If convicted Bryant could serve up to a year in jail. He could also be facing discipline for violating the NFL’s personal-conduct policy.
