Cleveland Browns defensive tackle Desmond Bryant is never going to hear the end of his Feb. 24 arrest, and deservedly so. Bryant, who police described as “extremely intoxicated” at the time, attempted to force his way into a stranger’s home in North Miami Beach after a night of partying in South Beach. He has already been charged with criminal mischief and given us one of the most epic mug shots in mug shot history, but it doesn’t end there. According to The Miami Herald, Bryant is also being sued by the owners of the home that he tried to force his way into. Homeowner Isaac Bakar said his family was “terrified” when they were awakened at around 5:30 a.m. to a 311-pound man who was attempting to pull their door off its hinges. The family’s attorney says they have needed psychological counseling. “They were scared,” attorney Robert Fiore said. “My client was holding on for dear life.” Bakar allegedly tried to physically hold the door so that Bryant could not get into the home while his wife called the police. The 170-pound Bakar feared that his family was falling victim to a home-invasion robbery from a person who is almost twice his size. As it turns out, Bryant claims he was so intoxicated that he thought the home we was unable to get into was his own — despite the fact that he lives nowhere near the Bakar residence. Bryant recently signed a five-year, $34 million contract with the Browns, and it sounds like some of that fat new deal could be heading to the family he scared the living daylights out of.
