Fox 4 in Dallas reports that Bryant faces a Class A family violence charge and has already bonded out of jail. No further information is available about what transpired leading to Bryant’s arrest …
Bryant is a very talented young receiver who has had some off-field red flags in the past, but none of those past red flags — ranging from NCAA eligibility issues to financial problems — had included an arrest. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, who has been one of Bryant’s strongest supporters, will surely be extremely disappointed by this development
*UPDATE* – More details are beginning to trickle out on this incident. From NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport:
Yikes indeed. You never put your hands on your mom. Ever!
This is Bryant’s first arrest, so he may avoid a suspension from Roger Goodell. Still, this is a disturbing event, one that more than likely could have been avoided and spared the Cowboys from the negative press they are receiving.
