Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was arrested on Saturday and charged with a Class A misdemeanor for assaulting a female family member, according to multiple reports out of Dallas. The victim did not require hospitalization, according to MyFOXdfw.com. Bryant, 23, turned himself in Monday and was released after posting bond. Bryant said "I'm good, I'm good," when contacted by News 8 in DeSoto, Texas. It would be the latest in a string of off-field incidents for Bryant. He was involved in an altercation with rapper Lil' Wayne at a night club in South Beach in January, although he was not arrested. Bryant was temporarily banned from a mall last year for arguing with security officers about his saggy pants. He has also been sued by a jewelry maker who claimed he owed $850,000 for unpaid merchandise. Bryant's college career at Oklahoma State ended prematurely when he was declared ineligible by the NCAA for impermissable contact with retired NFL star Deion Sanders.
