Dallas Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant has agreed to a year of anger management counseling that could lead to the Dallas County district attorney's office dimissing his misdemeanor family violence charge involving his mother, Angela Bryant. Bryant was arrested in July after he allegedly hit his mother in the face with a hat and grabbed her by her t-shirt.   Bryant's attorney Royce West said the deal with prosecuters was not a plea agreement. “It did not require a plea to be entered, and we still say he is innocent of any charges,” West said via the Star-Telegram.com. “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.” According to West both Bryant and his mother are satisfied with the deal and ready to move forward. “Both Dez and his mother are satisfied with today's decision,” West said. “Ms. Bryant did not want charges filed against her son. After having an opportunity to talk to people who witnessed the incident she filed an Affidavit of Non-Prosecution with the District Attorney's Office. The family always felt they could resolve this matter." NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell plans to review Bryant's case under the league's personal conduct policy.
