TMZ reports: A warrant was issued for Bryant’s arrest in South Florida on Tuesday … stemming from a domestic violence incident that allegedly occurred April 10 between Bryant and the mother of his child, Dianne Helne.
According to reports … Helne told the police Bryant pushed her in the face … put his hands around her neck while she was holding their young child … and then continued to kick and punch her, after she put the child down.
Shortly after the warrant was issued, the 31-year-old turned himself over to police. He was charged with domestic battery by strangulation, domestic violence and culpable negligence.
Bryant — who played in the NFL from 2002 to 2009 for the Cowboys, Browns, 49ers and the Buccaneers — was later released on $15,000 bail.
Bryant had a workout with the Seattle Seahawks this summer, but was released after suffering a leg injury.
