If Dez Bryant wants to do some shopping, he’s going to need to do it on the Internet or somewhere other than the NorthPark Center Mall.
Bryant has been banned from the mall for three months after he was issued a criminal trespass warning, according to the Dallas Morning News.
It seems Bryant and some members of his entourage created a disturbance when they were asked to exit the mall and … get this … pull up their britches. According to the report, Bryant and his posse had their underwear showing, leading an off-duty Dallas police officer to issue the warning.
Bryant was confrontational and originally refused to leave. Here’s the kicker: It’s not the first time Bryant has had issues at the mall. He had a “major disturbance” at the P.F. Changs and also caused a problem when he attempted to cut in line at the Apple Store. He’s also been cited for parking in the fire lane at the mall.
If the repeated incidents are accurate, it sounds like Bryant might have a little growing up to do. Surely, a mall doesn’t want to keep a high-profile athlete away.
