TMZ Sports had more details:
One staffer told police Crawford’s party had been bothering a female bartender at an inside area earlier that evening and they had been told to stay outside for the rest of the night or leave the premises.
25 minutes later, a fight broke out and several bouncers tried like hell to restrain Crawford and his brother — and judging by the video, it didn’t go very well.
The issue for Crawford and the Cowboys … the NFL can discipline Tyrone for his conduct if they feel he violated the league’s personal conduct policy … even if he ultimately beats the criminal charge.
Crawford, 29, has 173 total tackles and 22 career sacks since joining the Cowboys in 2012. He was a third-round pick out of Boise State.
