Dez Bryant, a star wide receiver on the Dallas Cowboys, was arrested over the weekend on charges of misdemeanor assault.
But the details of the alleged incident sounds felonious in our view. Or at least pretty darn messed up.
Based on legal documents obtained by TMZ, police were dispatched to the home of Bryant’s mother in DeSoto, Texas around 1:47 p.m. on Saturday.
Once there, authorities were told by Bryant’s mother, Angela, that she got into a fight with her son and, as she relayed to the officers:
“My son has assaulted me. He’s here now. He won’t go home. I keep telling him to go, he won’t go… I can’t let him keep doing me like this. I’m gonna put an end to it today.”
Police said they noticed bruises on Angela’s arms. She asserts that Bryant struck her in the face with his baseball cap and ripped her bra when he grabbed her by the shirt.
A Class A misdemeanor of this nature punishable by a fine of up to $4,000 and up to a year in jail.
