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.

Another millionaire that skated through school because of talent but no brains. The team owner will take care of him and nothing will happen. They did it with Michael Irvin and he's now in the Hall of Fame instead of prison where he should be.

Football and violence just go together. As an ex-football player it is drilled in to you at a young age, so I can't completely blame Dez, he just needs to learn to control it, and lay off the prescription drugs.

I certainly hope that the half-brother and mother don't depend on Dez for their livelihood or support, because if they do this could come back to bite them in the backside. No matter who is at fault, or how it all went down, this could cost them.

Well I like football so I had to comment on this. I just think the media is always over doing or blowing up the situation whenever it negatively and star's around. I hope his mother forgives him and he makes everything right with moms. Your grown now Dez just show her you’re a Bigger person mentally by treating her right or leaving the situation if negativity is around other than that go COWBOY's.

This guy would have been dead or in prison by now if he wasn't playing football. Not to suggest that he won't later be dead or in prison.
