Desmond Bryant facing lawsuit associated with last month’s arrest

DesmondBryant

When newly signed Browns defensive tackle Desmond Bryant provided us with a mug shot for the ages last month, we knew that he had been arrested on charges of criminal mischief.

There weren’t many other details available, but more has come to light thanks to a lawsuit filed against Bryant in Miami. Isaac Bakar alleges that he and his family were “terrified” when Bryant tried to break down the door to their house at 5:30 a.m. According to Bakar, he and his family held the door closed while Bryant’s efforts to get inside caused him to rip off the door handle to what he thought was his own home. Bryant’s own home is nowhere near where Bakar lives, though, and the two men do not know each other.

“They were scared,” said the family’s attorney, Robert Fiore, via the Miami Herald. “My client was holding on for dear life.”

After landing a big new contract with the Browns, Bryant said he wanted to move on from the arrest and the much-discussed mug shot. The lawsuit’s going to make it a little harder for him to do that.

    I mean this guy could have a 40 sack, 20 forced fumble Super Bowl and that mug shot will still be his defining image.

    A class action suit from the thousands traumatized when Des’ mugshot leaped out at them online.

    The Browns paid this guy wayyyyy to much.

    Raiders pickied up: Sims (bengals), Hunter (broncos) & Walker (falcons) all for the DL for wayyyyyy less than what Cleveland gave this guy.

    Notice the lawsuit didn’t come till after they prob seen this guys new contract ticker across the bottom of espn …

    Dont know why my comment got taken off. But he is lucky Mr. Bakar didnt stand his ground. His family seemed to be in danger at the time.

    He’s a Harvard graduate that had a high school 4.2 GPA and got 1230 on the SAT.

    Certainly not a flattering mug shot, but he’s probably in the top 5% of smartest guys in the NFL.

    Wow, what a baby. Americans are way too litigious. I’m sure his fear was lessened after realizing he could get some money from an NFL player without having to work for it.

    please proof-read.

    His BAC (blood alcohol content) is more relevant than his GPA.

    book smart, sure. means nothing.

    All the bars in Cleveland are excited about the signing.

  17. jetsjetsjetsnow says: Mar 19, 2013 4:10 PM

    What a moron!!!

    I hope the whole ‘traumatized’ neighborhood files a class action lawsuit against his arse.

    I can’t get enough of this mugshot.

  19. annes22 says: Mar 19, 2013 4:48 PM

    My goodness that’s a “lovely” mug shot. He looks
    “high as a kite” in that picture. Good luck Cleveland signing him, it figures they would do it. Harvard graduate someone says??? Good lord what an ad for that place. Obviously not a GPA in common sense that’s Z minus.

    They call these guys professionals.

    Yeah, most guys that try to bust down the wrong door at 5AM are geniuses. ;)

    How big is the owner of that home that he could hold the door shut? Pretty impressive.
