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.
