Dez Bryant

Allegedly Hit Mom in Face,

Ripped Her Bra

EXCLUSIVE

Dez Bryant mug shot
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant allegedly hit his mother in the face with his baseball cap ... and grabbed her by the shirt so hard that he ripped her bra ... this according to arrest documents obtained by TMZ.

The docs say ... cops were dispatched to Bryant's mother's home in DeSoto, Texas on July 14 at 1:47 PM after receiving a 911 call reporting an assault -- family violence.

Once cops arrived to the scene, Dez's mom Angela told cops she had gotten into an argument with Dez and demanded that he leave the home ... and that's when Dez got physical.

On the 911 call, Angela says, "My son has assaulted me. He's here now. he won't go home. I keep telling him to go, he won't go." You can clearly hear an argument in the background as Angela says, "I can't let him keep doing me like this. I'm gonna put an end to it today."

According to the documents, cops returned to Angela's home 2 days later and she complained of pain in her wrists, hands and arms ... and said her chest was sore from Dez pushing her.

Cops say they observed bruising in her upper arm. The docs list Dez Bryant as being 6'1", 198 pounds.

Bryant turned himself into police yesterday, and was booked for assault -- family violence, a Class A misdemeanor.

Dez’s attorney, Royce West, tells us ... “We’re going to do an investigation, find out what happened for ourselves. The most important thing is that we heal the family.”

IN MY OPINION    

I will refrain from judgement until I know what type of mother she is.

We tend to jump to conclusion but we don't know the whole story. I don't know what she said or did to trigger his anger, but violence is never the answer.

STAY AWAY FROM TOXIC PEOPLE.

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.

Seems like wearing the number 88 for the Cowboys leads to problems. E.g: Michael Irvin. Dez is an *******.
