DALLAS (AP) — Dallas 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 Angela Bryant, which means she doesn't want to proceed.
Police in the southern Dallas suburb arrested Dez Bryant last week after a July 14 incident in which he allegedly hit his mother across the face with a ball cap.
A police affidavit said Bryant grabbed his mother by her T-shirt, causing her bra to tear.
Because this is a pending case, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office could only say that the circumstances will be evaluated just like any other family violence case.
Royce West, Bryant's attorney, didn't return a message on Monday.
