Until yesterday Desmond Bryant was a name known only by Raider Nation, football aficionados and talent evaluators around the NFL. Even after the Raiders defensive tackle was arrested in Miami for criminal mischief he was immediately confused with Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant.
Unfortunately Oakland’s Bryant has now made a name for himself in one of the more infamous ways a pro athlete can these days.
As the details of his arrest slowly trickle out (he’s rumored to have arrived at the house of an acquaintance highly intoxicated) the unintentional (or perhaps completely intentional) comedy of his mug shot is now on full display.
Wasting no time in capitalizing on Bryant’s inebriated photo Deadspin has opened the flood gates by declaring open season on the snapshot sure to earn him a spot in the mug shot hall of fame. Already the Photoshop efforts are pouring in as countless interpretations on Bryant’s embarrassing moment are spreading across the net.
Of course this is sadly nothing new for the Raiders as Rolando McClain was also a target of the same Deadspin onslaught when he smiled for the cameras during his arrest. But in the end this is what happens when you get busted and your private moment becomes public property.
