Cowboys’ Dez Bryant arrested

Posted: Updated:

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was arrested recently in DeSoto.

On Saturday evening police responded to a family violence call in the 800 block of East Pleasant Run. Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for assaulting a female family member.

Police would not elaborate on the details of the case or Bryant's relationship to the alleged victim. However, they did say she did not require any hospitalization for her injuries.

The 23-year-old turned himself in on Monday and immediately posted his $1,500 bond.

According to state law, the charge against him is punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

A spokesman for the Cowboys said the team would wait to gather information before commenting.

Bryant has had his share of problems off the field.

In January he was involved in a fight with Lil Wayne at a Miami Beach night club, but he was never arrested or charged.

Last year he was temporarily banned from NorthPark Center for wearing saggy pants and arguing about it with security officers.

And he was sued by jewelry makers who claimed he owes $800,000 for unpaid merchandise and $50,000 for an unpaid loan.
