Dallas Cowboys tackle Tyron Smith had the police on his siblings after they came by to “harass and torment” him “in the pursuit of collecting financial gain.”
The Dallas Morning News reports that three people showed up to Smith’s house on Tuesday. Two of the people were sisters of Smith. The police report does not list the names of the parties involved.
A protective order was filed by Smith this summer to keep his stepfather and mother away. The order prevents them from visiting the Cowboys training camp and over the summer a family member had to be removed from the facility.
“Lesser means were tried and they weren’t successful,” Smith’s attorney John Schorsch said. “You can use your own imagination as to what it took for a guy that big and that imposing to be that worried.”
The ninth draft pick of 2011, Smith signed a $12.92 million contract with the Cowboys.
The paper says that Smith reportedly gave his family a substantial amount of money after he was drafted, but relatives keep coming back for more. Further, Cowboys security is aware of Smith’s family situation and has an organizational structure in place to help Smith avoid any incidents around the club.
Smith spent last season at right tackle but made the move to left tackle for the 2012 season.
