The rumors regarding an alleged “Ray Rice-style” video tape involving Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant took a different turn Thursday.
A police report surfaced from a July 11, 2011, incident from a Dallas-area Wal-Mart in which a witness reported seeing a woman allegedly being dragged out of a car by a man in the store’s parking lot.
The victim on the police report was listed as Ilyne Nash, who is Bryant’s girlfriend and mother to two of his children. You can see the entire police report at the bottom of the post.

Rice, of course, was caught on camera punching and knocking out his then-fiancee in an Atlantic City hotel elevator.
