Dallas Cowboys
wide receiver Dez Bryant was arrested on a family violence charge in Texas earlier today.

The details surrounding the arrest are unclear ... but according to local law enforcement, the charge is a Class A misdemeanor ... and Bryant was released after posting bail.

Law enforcement says Bryant's bail was less than $2,000.

When contacted by a local media outlet, Bryant confirmed there was an incident ... but wouldn't get into specifics. He did say, "I'm good."

This isn't Bryant's first brush with the law ... earlier this year, he was detained by Miami police after he was allegedly involved in an altercation outside LIV nightclub ... but he was not arrested and no police report was filed.

They teach these guys to be violent animals on the playing field, so why should we be surprised if they act like that off the field? Outlaw professional sports.

I love the Cowboys, so versatile. Their "wide receivers" can not only catch a football...they can catch a felony as well.

This guy is as talented as any receiver in the league. But he's such a knucklehead he'll never be a really great player. Of course it'll be somebody else at fault. He won't take any responsibility for his actions. He never does.

The thuggery that permeates the National Fraud League, is nearly as bad as their Ratings-induced
pre-determined endings.

Perhaps if players were fired for this type of behavior (and drunk driving) the incidents would stop.
