On Monday, Dallas Cowboy wideout Dez Bryant was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of alleged domestic violence against his own mother. The incident took place on Saturday and allegedly involved Bryant grabbing his mother by her T-shirt and hitting her across the face with a baseball cap.

I think it’s important to remember that Bryant’s mother has had a history of drug addiction resulting in multiple convictions on drug charges.
According to ESPN Dallas: “She served 18 months in prison after being convicted for selling crack cocaine in 1997. She was also sentenced to 10 years’ probation due to an April 2009 arrest for selling crack cocaine to police informants in Lufkin, Texas, and being found guilty of two felony counts for possession of a controlled substance and the manufacture and delivery of a controlled substance. “
