07:47 AM ET 07.17 | Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant pushed his mother on Saturday in an incident that wound up with Bryant arrested for misdemeanor family violence. A source told ESPNDallas.com that Bryant and his half brother had been in an argument before Bryant ended up pushing his mother. Police were called at that time, although the police didn't arrest Bryant until Monday. Bryant's mother did not need to be taken to the hospital for injuries. Bryant's mother, Angela Bryant, has had a number of run-ins with the law, including spending 18 months in prison during Dez's childhood for selling crack cocaine. Dolphins General Manager Jeff Ireland caused a stir at the 2010 NFL Scouting Combine for asking Bryant if his mother was a prostitute.

Well I NEVER!!!!

Bryant would do well to stay away from that nurturing environment if he wants to have a solid career.

I wonder how many holes Jason Garrett punched in his office wall when he heard about this. Training camp around the corner and they need to deal with THIS!!!

He was just proving he was faster and stronger than last season.

Of all the crimes committed in the NFL this one is a first for me....

A man that pushes his own mother, doesn't care much about anything else, and never will.

he ain't nothing but a punk......

This is such a feel-good story for the other 31 NFL teams.

She may very well still be a crackhead along with his brother. Maybe he was trying to prevent something from happening, Chico. You know these TnR threads are as bad as the National Inquirer or any other supermarket rag.

Something tells me his mother instigated this incident. Dez needs to check his crew, even if they are family. This needs to be considered a personal private matter and the sports world doesn't need to delve into this matter. Leave it be.

Again, proving the fact that there's no substitute for structure and stability while growing up. And though there are exceptions to the rule the usual outcome are these type of behaviors. Good fathers, .........where are you?

July 17, 2012  08:09 AM ET

I am shocked, shocked I say! Was his mom trying to touch his collection of jewelry?

Bad, bad mistake Dez, this one could have some serious implications....

Nah, he'll buy his Mama some bling and she'll refuse to testify. Case dismissed.

As much as I agree, I also know better. Roger "Goodfella" Goodell may be flying down to meet with them as we speak.

No, he isn't. That pompous prick calls everyone to his office. He'd never dream of meeting at their place unless it's one of his employers, er, owners.

I agree, that's possible. However, for charges to be brought up by his own family members, shows it was done deliberately, IMO. Had it been an accident, the authorities would have never been called. Not too many ways to look at it, when the bottom line is "he pushed his mother."

He's going to finish his career working for Jerry, for free.
