Police: Bryant beat up his momWith training camp just two weeks away, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is in trouble again.
DALLAS (AP) — With training camp just two weeks away, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is in trouble again.
The talented wide receiver was arrested Monday after being accused of attacking his mother during an argument, hitting her arms and face. He faces a charge of family violence, a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
The Cowboys had no comment on the latest stumble by Bryant since the Cowboys drafted him out of Oklahoma State in 2010.
Bryant had spent this offseason watching film, working on his conditioning and staying out of trouble off the field.
The 23-year-old Bryant surrendered Monday after police in DeSoto, south of Dallas, issued a warrant. Police said Angela Bryant called 911 Saturday to complain her son was assaulting her. Police arrived to find her with a swollen wrist and thumb and bruising on her upper arms, police Capt. Ron Smith said. She told police she had grabbed Dez Bryant’s shirt and he forcefully knocked her arms away, Smith said. Police say he hit her on the face with a ball cap and pushed her in the chest.
Bryant was released a few hours later without talking to detectives, Smith said. His attorney, Royce West, said Bryant posted $1,500 bond.
“I don’t know what the exact startup was, what caused everything,” Smith said. “I just know that his mother got involved and got injured.”
