Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant, one of the most talked about figures of the 2010 draft, was given a criminal trespass warning from an off-duty police officer at a Dallas shopping mall on Saturday.
According to ESPN.com, the police report says Bryant and some friends were involved in an altercation at NorthPark Center because their pants were too low, exposing their underwear.
The police report also says Bryant was given the warning after "creating a scene" and using profanity throughout the incident, which led the police to escort Bryant and his companions outside the mall.
"What the [expletive] are you stopping me, like I stole something," Bryant said, according to WFAA-TV in Dallas. "I'm not leaving until my attorney and my representative get here."
However, Bryant told ESPN.com that his pants were fine and it was his friends' pants that caused the problem.
"It really wasn't me in the wrong," Bryant said on Tuesday. "It's not even an issue."
Apparently, Bryant has had a "history of problems" at this particular mall that involve cutting in line, a parking citation, and a "major disturbance" at one of the mall's restaurants.
"I told the guy I'm not trying to get in trouble," Bryant said. "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."
WFAA-TV in Dallas reports that Bryant is banned from the mall for three months or he will be subject to arrest.
