Dez Bryant's mom doesn't want case
SportsNation: Romo Defends Bryant
Tony Romo has come to Dez Bryant's defense. Should Romo hold off on sticking up for Bryant? Comment and vote!
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 will pursue the case. Dez Bryant is accused of misdemeanor family violence.
Royce West, Bryant's attorney, didn't return a message Monday.
