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.

You guys at TMZ really need to have a running toteboard at the top of your home page for every stupid athlete that gets arrested for beating with wife, drunk driving, brawling in a club, not paying child support etc. Its now just a running joke.

Hey TMZ, how about doing a story about who in the NFL didn't get arrested this week? Every other day we read about another brotha getting arrested. Why is it so hard for these men to act like an adult and stay out of trouble?
