More details about the arrest of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant are coming to light, and they're not pretty. Domestic violence charges are always serious and never to be taken lightly, but if the allegations against him are true, Bryant might have vaulted himself into a very exclusive category of violent idiocy.
The police report of the incident says that he physically assaulted his mother.

Previous reports indicated that the female family member involved in the altercation with Bryant was his fiancee, not his mother. The argument also reportedly involved his half-brother.
Bryant is facing a Class A misdemeanor charge for domestic violence, which could potentially result in a $4,000 fine and a year in jail.
