Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is in trouble again, according to a report from WFAA in Dallas-Fort Worth.
According to WFAA, Bryant was arrested on Monday on charges that are not immediately clear, but a tweet by Mike Doocy of KDFW in Dallas says the arrest is a misdemeanor domestic violence charge.

Bryant’s professional career as a Dallas Cowboy has been marred with constant run-ins with the law and other off-the-field issues, including a criminal trespass warning at a Dallas shopping mall, hundreds of thousands of dollars in loan debts, lawsuits and a brawl with rapper Lil’ Wayne’s crew inside a Miami nightclub.
While Bryant is obviously an important figure in the Cowboys passing game, his off-the-field troubles are a constant headache surely unwanted by all those associated with the organization.
With a report surfacing from Pro Football Weekly’s Nolan Nawrocki that the Cowboys do not plan to give Bryant a second contract when his current one is up in 2015, Bryant’s arrest on Monday is poorly timed. If these reports are true, Bryant’s actions are a prime example of why the Cowboys may be more than happy to part with the former first-round draft pick despite his outstanding talents.
UPDATE: An update on KDFW‘s web site says Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for assaulting a female family member.
