FROM STAFF REPORTS Published: July 16, 2012

DeSoto police said details would be released Tuesday. Under state law, family violence is an attack or “a threat” of imminent harm against a member of a family or household. It's a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

This is Bryant's first arrest, but not his first incident that led to police involvement since being drafted in 2010.

Last year, Bryant faced two lawsuits that sought in excess of $800,000 in unpaid bills. There was also an incident at a Dallas mall over low-hanging jeans and language that led to him being temporarily banned from the mall.

In January, Bryant was detained by police but not arrested after an alleged altercation at a Miami Beach nightclub.
