Cowboys WR Bryant’s Mom Won’t Push for a Case Against Son

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant’s mother has told authorities that she doesn’t want to pursue a case against her son after an argument allegedly turned violent.

A Dallas County district attorney’s spokeswoman says the case DeSoto police filed against Bryant includes an affidavit of non-prosecution from the complainant. The affidavit means the complainant doesn’t want to proceed.

Police in the southern Dallas suburb arrested Bryant last week after a July 14 incident in which he allegedly hit his mother, Angela Bryant, across the face with a ball cap. A police affidavit says Bryant grabbed his mother by her T-shirt, causing her bra to tear.

Prosecutors haven’t said whether they’ll pursue the case. Dez Bryant is accused of misdemeanor family violence.

Royce West, Bryant’s attorney, didn’t return a message Monday.

    Why in the heck would she file charges. That would certainly severe any chance of riding along on the gravy train. Not that I’m a fan of Dizzy Dez but I think she better smile and nod her head and say yes to whatever Dez says or does or she’ll be out on the street, if she isn’t already.
