Dez Bryant Arrest Update: Cowboys Star Allegedly Shoved His Mother

The Dez Bryant arrest sounds a little bizarre, especially since details of the incident emerged on Tuesday morning. Apparently, Bryant is accused of shoving his mother during an altercation with his half brother. Earlier reports were conflicting as to whether Bryant was arrested on Saturday or Monday. But now reports are indicating the incident occurred on Saturday, but the Cowboys wide receiver wasn't actually arrested and charged with anything until Monday.

Bryant didn't make a big deal out of it when questioned, basically saying everything was fine.

Bryant comes from an interesting background to say the least, with his mother having spent 18 months behind bars during his childhood for selling crack cocaine. His father was supposedly a pimp, too. That's what led to one NFL executive asking him whether or not his mother was a prostitute.
