Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant had an arrest warrant put out on him in Desoto, Tx, a suburb of Dallas on Monday afternoon.
Saturday evening police responded to a family violence call in the 800 block of E. Pleasant Run in Desoto around 6pm. Desoto Police said that Bryant and a female relative had a physical altercation at her apartment before she called police to report the assault.
Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for assault.
Bryant is facing a Class A family violence charge. City records relating to the arrest will not be available until Tuesday.
Bryant confirmed to local news that there had been an incident but did not go into details either, insisting that he is “good”, while leaving with a close friend Monday evening.
Under state law, family violence is an attack or a threat of imminent harm against a member of a family or household. It’s a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.
Bryant could face penalties under the NFL’s personal conduct policy, and he could be punished by the Cowboys as outlined by a 2011 collective bargaining agreement.
The Dallas Cowboys open training camp in two weeks, first practice beginning on Monday July 30. Dez, stay out of trouble. The Cowboys need you to produce this year. It’s not a good look boy.
