Dallas Cowboys wide receiver and East Texas native Dez Bryant was arrested Monday near Dallas on a domestic violence charge, according to a report from TMZ, and now a report has surfaced that he assaulted his mother, allegedly hitting her in the face with a baseball cap and ripping her bra.

TMZ reports police were called to the house of Bryant’s mother, Angela, after she told police he had hit her.

“My son has assaulted me,” Angela says on the 911 call, obtained by TMZ. “He’s here now. he won’t go home. I keep telling him to go, he won’t go. I can’t let him keep doing me like this. I’m gonna put an end to it today.”

Police also apparently observed bruises on Angela’s arm.

This is the second run-in the Lufkin High School graduate has had with the police this year — earlier this year he was involved in an altercation at a night club, not to mention his past with owing Dallas-area jewelers money.

According to TMZ, Bryant was charged with a family violence, a Class A misdemeanor. He posted a $2,000 bond and was released. He reportedly was contacted by a local TV station and he said, “I’m good.”

Bryant was a four-year star at Lufkin High School before he played at Oklahoma State, where his career was cut short after he was suspended for a year after he lied to the NCAA about a relationship he had with former Dallas Cowboys superstar Deion Sanders.
