According to Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant will be forced to undergo anger management after having the case dismissed stemming from the incident in which he assaulted his own mother.
In effort to get the ugly incident in July behind him, Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant entered a conditional dismissal agreement with the Dallas County District Attorney’s office in an effort to resolve the misdemeanor family charge involving his mother, Angela Bryant.
According to his attorney Royce West, Bryant will undergo a year of anger management counseling and must stay out of trouble for a year. If he does all that, the original charges will be dropped, per the agreement with the district attorney.
The key to the agreement, according to West, is that Bryant continues to maintain his innocence and never had to enter a plea.
“It did not require a plea to be entered, and we still say he is innocent of any charges,” West said. “But to get the issue behind him, we entered into this agreement with the district attorney. The bottom line is if Dez keeps his nose clean, and he has never been in trouble before, and if does counseling that he has already started, it will be dismissed in a year.”
Now Bryant needs to grow up, stay out of trouble and focus on being a great NFL receiver.
