Dallas Cowboys: Dez Bryant Gets Himself Into Hot Water Again

Dallas Cowboy wide receiver Dez Bryant is in the news again and not the good kind.

Bryant and some friends were apparently asked to leave NorthPark Mall in Dallas on Saturday and given a criminal trespass warning from off-duty officers.

According to a police report filled out at the scene, Bryant and three other men were asked by mall security to "pull up their pants" because their underwear was showing. "It really wasn't me in the wrong," Bryant told Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas. "It's not even an issue."

Bryant went on to say, "I told the guy I'm not trying to get in trouble. I'm not trying to destroy my image. The [warning] wasn't toward me. I was trying to figure out what was going on. It was a big misunderstanding. I was the wrong guy."

Rumors flew that he and his friends were banned from the mall for three months but the Cowboys' wide receiver later tweeted, "Headed to North Park tomorrow to get these Lebrons....I am not banned from North park lol."

Ever since Bryant was drafted by the Cowboys, it seems drama has followed him wherever he's gone.

First it was the shoulder pad situation with teammate Roy Williams during training camp last year, then he was involved in what was called a "major disturbance" at a restaurant located inside the same mall he was booted from over the weekend.

If you're wondering when the young wide receiver out of Oklahoma State is ever going to grow up, the answer to that question may be a resounding 'NO' especially if these incidents continue to pile up.

Whether he becomes a public relations' nightmare for the Cowboys may be more of a 'when' than 'if.'
