Dez Bryant

Allegedly Hit Mom in Face,

Ripped Her Bra

7/17/2012 8:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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.”

He's a little young out of control ass - I say kick him off the Cowboys roster and send him packing straight to jail!

The man is violent and should be prosecuted for his conscienceless actions against his mother, who is probably much smaller than this brute. Yes, it is shameless and a crime and he should be punished where it hurts him the most by being suspended by the NFL. He's had many brushes with the law before and after he was drafted by the Cowboys and therefore should know better and it appears he does not have any control.

Makes no sense to me...families have spats, but what is a world class athlete with world class money be doing in a situation like this? And how many moms ask their rich sons to leave? This is just so rediculous. Sad, but rediculous. More going on here that what we know or read.

This is a tragedy for the cowboys he will be talked about for years to come. I have been a cowboy fan for years and this is terrible for us to go through again. As for Dez man look to God to get your life back together cause he is your savior and a merciful GOD. MARK15:20

Dude should be taken out back and shot in the face for hitting his own mother. No longer a Dallas fan as long as this fool is on the squad.

Yeah well y'all don't know his mom or what his life has been like!!!! His mom wouldn't have sh!t if it weren't for Dez. He is not a let to Lufkin. Not agreeing at all but seriously he is not a thug. Outlaw would still b proud of Dez.

If it weren't for Dez his mom would still be nothing. Research before you comment. He is a kid that overcame a lifetime in his short life. Coach outlaw would be proud and we in Lufkin will still wear our Bryant jerzees.

First off all his mother is batteling a drug addiction. So, there is no way to confirm if she was in her right mind at the time she called the police. No one knows the full story, as we were not present at the event. Before you pass judgement, just know that Dez and his mother's relationship has never been a good one. He was raised by his aunt because of his mother's drug addiction. The altercation occured in Desoto, TX, at the home of his Aunt. Why was his momma even over there? Was she begging for money to fed her addiction? Think about that before you're so quick to jump on this man. And furthermore, get 'cha facts straight... He didn't beat her up... her shirt got torn and she made complaints about her wrist. To me, it sounds like he was tryna make the bitch stay where she was, instead she was tryna go to Soooouth Dallas and get a rock. It ain't no secret about this lady's addiction.
BiTCH, I'M FROM FORT WORTH, TX !!! #inthisthang #****youmean
