Dallas Cowboys receiver and former Oklahoma State star Dez Bryant turned himself into DeSoto, Texas, police on Monday and was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge, according to multiple reports.

According to police, Bryant was booked after turning himself in without incident.

KDFW-TV in Dallas reported that police responded to a family violence call in DeSoto on Saturday night. Bryant was charged with a Class A misdemeanor for assaulting a family member. The woman, who police declined to identify or elaborate on her relationship to Bryant, did not need to be taken to the hospital for her injuries.

Bryant confirmed the incident to WFAA-TV in Dallas, but would not go into specifics.

“I'm good. I'm good,” he said.

Drew Rosenhaus, Bryant's agent, declined to comment. But the Cowboys did release a statement, saying “We are in the process of gathering information and will not have a comment at this time.”

Bryant's attorney, Royce West, says Bryant posted $1,500 bond after learning a warrant had been issued for his arrest.
