UPDATE: Dez Bryant's "Domestic Dispute" Was Altercation With Half-Brother & MOTHER, Turns Himself In
So about that domestic dispute that led to NFL star Dez Bryant's arrest yesterday...we now know it involved an altercation between him and both his mother & half-brother.
After reports hit the net last night that Dez Bryant was arrested after a domestic dispute this weekend, new reports today are giving the details. It didn't involve a girlfriend or baby mama, but instead, Dez's own mother!
ESPN Dallas confirmed today that Dez "turned himself in" for his arrest on Monday, as they confirmed with the Desoto Police Department. The same police department confirmed he was actually arrested on Saturday when the actual assault occurred, so no word on if there were two different arrests.
As for what went down, the site reports:
A source said late Monday night that Bryant, in an argument with his half brother, wound up pushing his mother, Angela. According to the source, police responded to a call on Saturday night, but no arrests were made at that point. Further examination of the reports resulted in Monday's arrest, the source said.
Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for assaulting a female family member, police told KDFW-TV in Dallas. The woman did not need to be taken to the hospital for her injuries, the report said.
TMZ gives more details claiming Dez allegedly threw his baseball cap in his mother's face during an argument, and grabbed her by her shirt so hard that it ripped.
Dez's mother allegedly ordered Dez to leave when the argument started, and this led to the altercation. Police also confirmed to the gossip site that they saw bruises on her upper arm. Dez's mother claimed she also had painful bruises on her wrists, chest & hands.
