Dez Bryant is a criminal! Okay, not at all, but Bryant was issued a criminal trespass warning at the North Park Mall in Dallas yesterday.â†µ
Apparently the issue at hand was Bryant, or one of Bryant's friends, had their pants hanging too low and, as the Dallas police put it, had their "underwear and buttocks" exposed to other shoppers at the mall. The Dallas police, via Yahoo! Sports, had this to say:â†µ
Bryant was issued a criminal trespass warning by representatives of NorthPark Center when he began using profanity after he and his companions were requested to pull their pants up by Dallas Police officers working off-duty at the scene so as to not expose their underwear and buttocks to other patrons of the center. This action is not a violation of law and officers would have taken no official police action. Mr. Bryant's response to the request was profanity laced [as in, per the police report, "What the [expletive], you stopped me like I stole something!"], and center representatives felt the outburst merited a request for Mr. Bryant to leave the premises.â†µ
This is really a non-story, but it's kind of amusing. Perhaps the North Park Mall security should hire the "Pants on the Ground" guy to help patrol and issue citations to offenders, he'll lay down the law.
