Dez Bryant arrested on misdemeanor family violence charge
The Cowboys receiver was arrested on misdemeanor family violence charges in DeSoto, Texas, on Monday, according to WFAA.
When contacted by WFAA reporter Rebecca Lopez, Bryant did not talk about the incident and only provided this earth-shattering quote: “I’m good, I’m good.”
Bryant allegedly slapped/hit his mother, leading to his arrest.
We do not know exactly what Bryant did or did not do, but, at this point we can conclude that this guy is a trouble magnet.
Let’s do the list:
- - Suspended during 2009 season at Oklahoma State for lying to NCAA
– Refuses to carry pads at Cowboys camp per rookie tradition
– Gets into trouble at mall for sagging his pants
– Needs new contract to pay off jeweler, other debts
If you look at each item individually, it’s not a horrible rap sheet, and certainly nothing close to getting a DUI or threatening to kill someone. But it’s still not a good look and just signifies a lack of maturity and stability.
We still think Dez Bryant can be a good receiver for the Cowboys despite the problems, but he’s providing unnecessary distractions for the team.
