Was Dez Bryant Arrested For Assaulting His Own Mother?

Yesterday we reported that Dez Bryant had been arrested on misdemeanor family violence charges. Details are slowly coming out and now we finally learn the identity of the victim, Dez's mother.

Dez turned himself in to police yesterday after police obtained a warrant on the family violence charge. The incident occurred Saturday night when Bryant got into an altercation with his half brother that resulted in him shoving his mother Angela. Police were called to the home but no arrests were made. Angela nor Dez's half brother needed to be taken to the hospital for injuries. Law enforcement further reviewed the case however, and issued a warrant for Dez's arrest, leading him to turn himself in to DeSoto Police. Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for assaulting a female family member punishable by a fine of up to $4,000 and up to a year in jail and possibly a breach of the NFL's personal conduct policy.

His mom was a crack dealer and last got arrested in 2009. No wonder this boy can't stay out of trouble. Sheesh! He needs anger management 2 years ago and an ego debooster!

Dez isn't this kind of person, his family is very toxic to him and he doesn't deserve that one bit. All he does is try to help them and foot the bill for their lives.

first thing I thought when I heard this story is 1. SOMEBODY WANTED SOME $$ out of him and 2. He was pushed over the edge.

I don't know his deal, but I got a problem with his momma still living in Desoto FREAKING Texas...as soon as I heard that I figured she must've hit him up for some cash. Some family of these players are just wrong. Yeah that's his momma. S*** happens. But she is/was a crackhead and I went with my gut. I WISH MOST OF THESE PLAYERS WOULD DROP their families like a bad habit the moment they get a contract. These mooching SOB's get on my nerves and when they don't get their way they go crazy. He probably told his moms HELL NO to giving her more $ and her crazy ass went off. Now he got hit with these charges because his cracky relatives charged at him...smh. Damn. He need to leave all of his family chilling in rotten ass Desoto and never look back. Keep driving down the Highway to Arlington and stay focused on the upcoming season. Don't answer their calls and definitely cut that b**** off!

I'm a firm believer in 'catch me in the streets'......I'm not going to your house on any bullsh*t and you cant come to mine with none either.  From my understanding, he was at his mother's house. If she was f**king with him, he was suppose to leave......not man-handle her. In Texas, too...........he's lucky he didnt get shot with that mess.

Situation had  to  be  bad  from the  get go.   Dez  has  been in the  league    for  three  to  four  years  .   Its reported    that  his  momma  is  now  37  .  Assuming    that  he  was  in college  for  4-5  years  he  is    24 -25????

http://blacksportsonline.com/home/?s=dez+bryant

 

My  momma  takes  me  to the  edge  on the  regular .  When you  are   the  person in the  family  making money    sometimes  you  feel a  little  used.  I  actually    just  made  that  sound  as  PC as  possible.

 

I  have  another  friend who  is  also  an MD,  from a  family  of  two  MD's  who  had  to  go  to  therapy  behind  her  Mother  and  the  outcome was ..  they  basically could  not  have  a  regular  relationship .

Family   is  not  always  easy  .

 Doesnt  mean  you  need  to  rough  your  Momma   up.  My  Mother  is  75  and  would  still  beat  my  ass  though  if  I  even  tried . Plus my Grandmother ,  who  told  me  my  Mother  had  issues ,  would  roll  up  out  of  her  grave  and  kill  me  and  drag  me   back to  the  grave  with  her. 

Wrong  is  wrong . You  just  have to  walk  away. 

Im  just  saying   that  Im  not  sure   that   they  had  the  capacity  to  have  a  normal Mother/Son  relationship  if  thats  the  case .  Add  some  dollars    and  you  can  see  how  this  might  have  come  to  be
