The Cowboys' handing of the Bryant stems from a July assault charge against him for striking his biological mother. Although this was his first arrest as an adult, he has a history of run-ins with the law dating back to his days at Oklahoma State. Bryant's conduct rules include a midnight curfew, no drinking alcohol, no attending strip clubs, twice-a-week counseling sessions and monitoring by a three-man security team.
