Dez Bryant Kicked Out Of NorthPark For ‘Pants On The Ground’


Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant found himself at the wrong end of the law for not properly covering his hind end Saturday.

Bryant and three of his friends were ejected from the NorthPark shopping center Saturday after a dispute between Bryant and two off-duty officers over the men sagging their pants below their hips, exposing their underwear.

A Tuesday police statement says officers working off-duty Saturday as security at NorthPark encountered Bryant and three companions wearing the drooping pants.

When the officers asked the four to pull up their trousers, Bryant launched into a profanity-laced tirade. According to the statement, when confronted, Bryant told officers. “What the ****, you stopped me like I stole something.” That prompted the officers to escort the four from the mall.

Police say Bryant refused to leave, however, until his “representative” could arrive and he parked in a fire lane until a friend arrived and persuaded him to go.

No charge was filed, but a Miscellaneous Incident Report was filed.

Bryant’s agent, Eugene Parker, declined to comment. The Dallas Cowboys did not respond to requests for comment.

The city of Dallas is no stranger to controversy surrounding sagging pants. Mayor Dwaine Caraway, serving as mayor pro-tem at the time, tried to pass an ordinance against it in 2007. Ultimately the city decided not to pursue the ordinance, citing constitutional issues.

While I think the low-hanging pants is a really stupid look, I think it's a little silly for rent-a-cops at a mall to be trying to police it. It's not like it's obscene.

Low-hanging pants looked stupid; and then emos took it up a notch by wearing low-hanging skinny jeans. That's got to be the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen on someone. It looks as if they crapped their pants, and they're trying to keep it from running down their legs.

I don't get why people who sag think that it is socially acceptable to wear their pants like that. And it's not just teenagers. Adults do it too.

Sagging has changed a bit from back in the day. Saggers used to wear long shirts, covering their underwear. It was more about the look of the baggy pants when they sagged. But now these guys are wearing shorter shirts, exposing their underwear. A lot of them are walking around with their entire ass hanging out. I was at the DMV not too long ago. This guy had a shirt that stopped at his waist line, and he had his pants sagging below his ass. So everybody waiting their turn were stuck with his underwear in their sight. Like dude, WTF? I'm here to pay my registration, not see a male peep show.

Moorpark mall is probably the nicest one in Dallas. I can understand them trying to protect that image. They spent alot of time and effort getting the exclusive client base that can actually afford to shop there. The last thing they need is some thug life posse walking in inadvertently mooning their patrons.

I have no problem with an establishment having some type of reasonable dress code. Here in LA, for night life I rather go places that enforces a dress code. There are places that won't allow you in with t shirts, and a few places that won't let you in with jeans on. I like that, they're trying to bring in a certain crowd. I rather hang with those folks than dudes rolling in with football jerseys on and baseball caps. I never understood one thing. Women will get all dressed up, but guys will be dressed like they're going to a ball game. Weird.

Deliberately showing your underwear at a mall is, yes, obscene.

There is no society in the entire world that considers deliberately showing your underpants in public acceptable behavior.

Are you sure? I don't think so. Is it ill-advised? Yes. But the underwear most of these clowns wear are boxers. Boxers really don't look a whole lot different than shorts.

I'm talking about something that is legally considered obscene. The original article had this: "The city of Dallas is no stranger to controversy surrounding sagging pants. Mayor Dwaine Caraway, serving as mayor pro-tem at the time, tried to pass an ordinance against it in 2007. Ultimately the city decided not to pursue the ordinance, citing constitutional issues."

Technically, a person wearing cargo shorts would be showing more than these idiots with their saggy pants. I just think it looks ridiculous. But where do you draw the line with regulating taste? What about piercings? Tattoos? Hair styles?

I don't know. We've got this one chick with a ridiculously killer body that likes to show off in one of the local malls. Leaves nothing to the imagination. Right out there for the world to see.

She seems to be a tad on the frigid side, though. Not much to talk to. She must like me, though, because she really seems to tense up whenever I'm around her. Can't even look me in the eyes or even move for that matter.

All I know is that her name is Victoria and she must be doing well because she owns her own store and it's the only one that hasn't ever shut down and been replaced by something else.

I think I know her, actually. Sometimes, when I need a quiet place to think, I will go hang out in these little rooms she has in her store. Each has a bench and a mirror, so they're great for thinking. I'll stay there until some of the anti-quiet-place nazis make me leave. These guys are like Big Brother. They hate quiet thinkers like me. Not too long ago, one of their leaders (he goes by "Your Honor" - can you believe that?) made me register on this website with my picture and the make and model of my car. They're so anti-quiet-thinking that they told me I can't get withing 100 yards of schools.

Yeah. Thongs plus pregnancy equals wrong.

I just think about the prospect of having my underwear up my butt all day, and it sounds pretty awful. But each to his own.

My most memorable thong-watching experience came at a Taco Bell. My son and I were waiting for this large, smelly woman to make our food. She kept going from holding the food, to digging her thong out of her butt, to handling people's money, and back to the food. There was no hand-washing in the process. Poor little princess was working all by herself, and my son had a good story to tell his friends - it was forgivable, in other words. But we didn't eat the food, and I haven't been back to Taco Bell since (and this was three years ago, or thereabouts).

No doubt. I have worked in the inner city missions for a long time and I have guys come to church with their pants on around their thighs. With belts on! Most of the times those guys didnt stay, they were just picking up their kids and maybe the girlfriend. I had to teach our kids that sometimes its not appropriate to wear your underwear in plain view.

Dez is ghetto for sure, but he has been given a ticket for he and his family to get out. He has every resource he would ever need to take this opportunity and make the most of it. His story is rare. Most people dont have a silver spoon given to them like that because God has given them incredible physical gifts. To squander it would be incredibly sad. Not only for him but for the scores of kids that he could provide an example for.

I, too, work with inner city youth. You should see their reaction when I bring up where the sagging pants off the butt look started. Seems it was a way to inform fellow inmates in prison that they were 'willing' participants. Amazing how quickly some of the kids pull the pants up or cover them with the longer shirt! I hate the look, but when I consider what Lawrence Taylor got away with, kinda pales in comparison.

Agreed. I use to sag in high school. It was always about giving the baggy look, but I always wore a long shirt to cover up the boxers. Saw someone on the metro not to long ago and they had their shirt tucked into the boxers. Wanted to smack the **** out of them.

It has now been 20 years of Marky Mark low hanging pants and the **** needs to die already. What a ****ing stupid way to walk around. What is the point? Here is one for you and that is Calvin Klein gets to charge double or triple of what underwear should cost because they now need to be a "style" since everyone needs to see them. Sorry but it is completely lame at any age. This dude is 22 years old and dresses like a teenager. Anyone out there please catch a clue and know that us regs are laughing at you.

IF you see some crazy bum looking guy walking down the same sidewalk as you, you will think about it and possibly move away or at least keep a close eye on him.

But back to the real point, the visible display of underwear in this culture's context is just about an open invitation.

Thats just how it is. You may have some other fantastic world in mind where someone who shows their thong and their tramp stamp to the world in fact isnt broadcasting their sexuality, but lets pull back into reality.

Dont for a minute think that girls are stupid. There's a reason why they wear things like that. Its because they know that men are easily manipulated and it gives them a bit of power to attract zombie-eyed gawkers to their wares.

What men dont realize is that women dont really care to see their boxer shorts. It doesnt really do much for them. They'd rather you show up in a mercedes with an invitation to dinner at a nice restaurant.

I believe the quote was "we have a nation of sluts," so tell me who pulled the hyperbole card?

Do you honestly believe the sagging fashion has something to do with showing underwear to girls? They sag for the same reason every other stupid fashion trend is followed, it is the uniform of their social sub culture. To take it one step further these uniforms become part of a group or individuals identity. There isn't a single obscene thing about it. Is it stupid looking? Maybe. Is it obscene? I'm sitting here on a college campus and can see at least 12 showing more than the typical sagging individual, I don't see any police...so I guess not.

No maybe, it is definitely stupid looking.

While I think it's stupid looking, I go with maybe since I'm sure I am not the king of fashion. To some I'm sure my Surf T-shirts and cargo pants are stupid looking.

I have a hard time wrapping my brain around what these guys are doing. Dude probably walks in a jewelry store and says "I'll take one of these, one of those, two of the ones over there. Oh, I need something for my mother. Let me have that one there."

I wonder if he is already in debt after one year.

It's crazy. I have no doubt that he spent all or most of what he made last year. I find it sad, he had a pretty crappy life growing up and if this continues he is going to have a crappy life getting older.

Without the team being able to babysit him during the lockout, I wonder how long before he gets into real trouble.

This guy seems like a Grade-A, prototype knucklehead. He obviously didn't have an ideal childhood and you have to feel bad for him about that, but he's now being given a brilliant opportunity to change his life forever-- it will be painful to watch him screw it up. Seems as inevitable as the tides. Hopefully an older vet can talk a bit of sense into him at some point along the road, but I doubt it. If he won't listen to Deion now, who's he going to respect more later on, when he's more established?

Nope. I think the odds are very high that he will make tens of millions of dollars, and not only be stone broke within a year after the end of his NFL career, but probably millions of dollars in debt to boot. And he'll probably flat waste most of it on dumb **** like buying buying rides for all his homies, lavish vacations for the entire crew, expensive bottles at the scrip club, designer wardrobe. . . and jewelery. Beyond a couple pimp mansions and the diamonds, none of it will have much re-sale value if any. Most of the cash will get spent on status symbols and pure luxury items. And three years down the road you'll hear about Dez getting busted in some petty robbery scam like OJ.

Naturally you hope it doesn't play out like that, but this guy just looks like he's destined for trouble IMO.

He’s 20 something years old and he’s hanging out at the freaking mall ……..

Urban kids 12 to 15 years old hang out at the mall until they get their drivers license. What does that tell you about his maturity level?

Bryant reportedly owes huge sums – maybe as much as $800,000 – for unpaid jewelry bills and tickets to sporting events. Now, the Tulsa World reports that Bryant has faced legal action for more than a year in Stillwater, Okla., where he was sued for $3,479.80 in January 2010 for failure to pay rent and damages to a home he rented while at Oklahoma State.

“He still has not paid us,” Bryce Campbell, the manager for the property company involed, told the World. “He will not answer our calls.

The guy spent over $800,000 before he signed his first NFL contract. Somebody needs to save him from himself.

With most of these guys, after their playing career is over they can't land a job because most of them do not finish college, and they have not been in the workforce. So if they're in debt or have little to show for their career, they're pretty much screwed.

I heard an older guy say something that made total sense. He said that when he was growing up the saying was that if you can afford to drive a Cadillac, drive a Buick. If you can afford to drive a Mercedes, drive a Cadillac.

I was watching Real Sports a month ago, and they had this one former player who is now broke. He said that he was making $5 million a year, so he was living a $5 million lifestyle. Then he got cut. He signed with another team for $500,000 a year, but he still lived that $5 million lifestyle. He was broke pretty quick, and then out of football.

I don't feel too bad for these players though. They have access to financial planners and rookies have to go to workshops where they are told how to save their money. Problem is that none of them listen. Sucks for them.
