It has been a tumultuous off-season for many NFL players with many off-field issues casting a bit of a shadow over the league. Dez Bryant continued to add fuel to the fire after he was arrested on Monday on charges of misdemeanor domestic violence.
This one is not a pretty story, and here’s wishing his mother does not have to put up with any more behavior like this from the Dallas Cowboys WR.
The audio of the his mother’s 911 call can be found here.
“Desoto police say Dez Bryant assaulted his mother,” Rebecca Lopez of WFAA-TV wrote on her Twitter account. “Slapped her across the face and pulled her hair. Dez Bryant’s mother says she had pain and swelling as a result of injuries according to a police report. Police report says Bryant’s mother had asked him to leave when he allegedly assaulted her.”
The Dallas Morning News then reported that “Angela Bryant told police that she and her son got into an argument Saturday afternoon at her home in the 800 block of West Pleasant Run Road. Police said the Lufkin native grabbed his mother by the T-shirt, causing it and her bra to tear, according to police documents. She said he then grabbed her by the hair and slapped her across the face with his ball cap.”
Bryant would only say, “I’m good. I’m good,” in response to the allegations.
“He has been frustrating and he has been elating,” Jones said last November. “It’s exactly what we thought when we drafted him right to the T. And so if we didn’t plan on having a little frustration we should have gone a different direction. No surprises with him.”
Things will not get any easier for Dez Bryant after this, and it would surprise me if we see him on the football field this year.
