Dez Bryant's Mom Wants Case Dropped

Dez Bryant's mother called the police on July 16, probably out of immediate concern for her safety, but that doesn't mean she wants to see her son go to prison. Bryant's mother has told the police that she wants the case against her son dropped.

Bryant was arrested following a domestic dispute in which he allegedly struck his mother, and he's facing a misdemeanor charge that carries a maximum sentence of one year in jail.

The case that police filed against Bryant includes an affidavit of non-prosecution from the complainant, which means that the person who initially filed the complaint -- Bryant's mother -- does not want to proceed with the case. There's no word yet on whether or not prosecutors plan to go forward with the case even without the endorsement of the complainant, but it's hard to believe they would have much of a case if Bryant's mother refused to testify against her son.

Dez Bryant Slapped His Mother And Pulled Her Hair, According To Report

More details about the arrest of Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant are coming to light, and they're not pretty. Domestic violence charges are always serious and never to be taken lightly, but if the allegations against him are true, Bryant might have vaulted himself into a very exclusive category of violent idiocy.

The police report of the incident says that he physically assaulted his mother.

Previous reports indicated that the female family member involved in the altercation with Bryant was his fiancee, not his mother. The argument also reportedly involved his half-brother.

Bryant is facing a Class A misdemeanor charge for domestic violence, which could potentially result in a $4,000 fine and a year in jail.

Dez Bryant Arrested: Cowboys WR Turned Himself In, Released On Bond

On Monday, it was reported that Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge. Late Monday evening, some details surrounding that arrest are beginning to trickle out.

Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Star-Telegram reports that police responded to a family violence call Saturday involving Bryant and his fiancee, whose injuries did not require hospitalization. According to Bryant's attorney, the receiver turned himself in Monday after learning there was a warrant for his arrest. He immediately posted $1,500 bond. Bryant has yet to comment publicly.

Bryant is facing a Class A misdemeanor charge, which could cost him up to $4,000 and a year in jail.

The Cowboys released a statement through spokesman Rich Dalrymple: "We are in the process of gathering information and will not have a comment at this time."

This may bode ill for Bryant's future with the Cowboys.
