It was reported early this morning by a reporter from the South Florida Sun Sentinel that Cowboys Wide Receiver Dez Bryant was arrested in Miami on Saturday Night. As it turns out, the Cowboys troubled wide out was working out in Dallas and the player arrested was Oakland Raiders Desmond Bryant on charges of criminal mischief for showing up at a neighbors house drunk and causing a commotion.
Ooo shit false rumors about jail? Lol I was working out at 2 something in the morning in Dallas tx

Given his history, it is a pretty easy mistake to make. At the same time, given that same history, it would be wise to fact check before floating the news out there.
On a similar note, I wonder how former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson will do in the Daytona 500 today and when “White Chocolate” Jason Williams will be getting out of jail for shooting a limo driver while riding a motorcycle into a tree.
