    Default ESPN: Dez Bryant sued over jewelry (3/30 new lawsuit filed)

    Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant is being sued for $246,000 by a New York-based jewelry company in a civil suit filed Friday in Dallas.

    Bryant purchased $267,000 worth of jewelry from A+A Diamonds LTD d/b/a Rafaello & Company, which makes high-end jewelry for celebrities and athletes.

    Bryant's highest purchase was a $60,000 custom charm bracelet. He made the purchases on four different days last year, spending as much as $144,000 on Feb. 8, 2010, according to court documents.

    "We'll let the lawsuit speak for itself," said Mike Bowes, a Dallas-based attorney who represents the plaintiffs. "My clients in New York worked for several months with Mr. Bryant's counsel to work something out with no satisfactory resolution."

    Bryant could not be reached for comment.

    The Cowboys wide receiver was in trouble two weekends ago when he received a criminal trespass warning for an incident at NorthPark Center when he got into a profanity-filled exchange with off-duty police over sagging pants. Bryant said his pants weren't the problem, but one of his friend's pants were low and Bryant got into an argument with the police, who took exception to the fashion statement. Bryant later said that he was treated badly by the police.

    Yikes. Those are violations for Oklahoma. Illegal contact with an agent. Receiving improper benefits. They'll get a lack of institutuinal control out of it. Big time violations right there.

    Not to mention that Bryant has already blown through 90% of the cash he's received on his rookie contract, and that's just the spending we know about.

    Seems like pro football players will never learn how to act like humans and take responsibility.
    In 49 states it's just basketball, but this is Indiana!

    Dez Bryant, certainly won't, and there are many others, but that's not fair to generalize all NFL players like that.

    Cowboys WR Bryant Accused of Non-Payment of Rent in Stillwater

    http://www.nflgridirongab.com/2011/0...in-stillwater/

    Matt Baker of the Tulsa World reports Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant’s legal problems date back to his days in Stillwater, according to court documents.

    Bryant was sued for $3,479.80 in January 2010 for failing to pay his rent and damages at the three-bedroom, two-bathroom home he rented in Stillwater, according to Payne County District Court documents.

    “He still has not paid us,” said Bryce Campbell, the manager for Jim Campbell Property Management, the plaintiff in the case. “He will not answer our calls.”

    Bryant was ruled ineligible by the NCAA during the 2009 season, and he lost his final appeal on Nov. 5 of that year.

    Well first off he's a dumbass

    Second at this rate you might as well rename the thread "The Dez Bryant Thread" for all his exploits I did that with Roethlisberger
