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 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.
