We all know the story. Dez Bryant was arrested for misdemeanor family violence for allegedly grabbing his mother by the hair and hitting her. Sure, that sounds bad enough, especially for a guy who is already under the microscope. Of course, things got worse for Dez when the 911 tape was released this afternoon. His mothers voice is heard saying that her son “tried to kill” her. Just what Jerry Jones wants to hear, his star wide receiver trying to kill his own mother.
Wait there’s more! His mother is 37! He’s 23!
Yeah, you can do the math. Dez was born on November 4, 1988. His mother was 14 at the time of Dez’s birth. Dez is keeping the family tradition rolling, as he has a 2 year old son. Not exactly eye-opening when an athlete has a child at 21. Happens all the time. What is eye opening is that Dez’s mom, the mom he allegedly tried to kill, is a 37 year old grandmother.
So here’s the recap:
- Grandmother, Angela Bryant: 37 years old
- Son, Dez Bryant: 23 years old
- Grandson, Dez Bryant Jr.: 2 years old
Angela Bryant said during her call to authorities her son “tried to kill me,” and that she was going to “put an end to it today.”
“Babe, I can’t keep letting him do this. . . . I can’t let him do me like this. I’m tired. I’m going to put an end to it today,” the 37–year-old woman could be heard saying during the call.
Things are not looking good for Dez. He could face up to a year of jail time if he is convicted, and even if he’s not, you know the commish isn’t going to take this lightly. The way he’s been dishing out suspensions, Dez could be facing some serious sh*t.
