The only person who spoke was his lawyer Royce West and he didn’t take any questions.

Bryant and his mother was there, but said nothing. West says the incident was a mere “disagreement” and that Dez is innocent.

His mom Angela will not cooperate with police.

Here is the full statement.

Mr. Bryant and his mother, Angela are appearing here today because they feel it is important to address recent reports that Mr. Bryant committed family violence against his mother. Although Dez would like to speak to this matter, on the advice of counsel, he will not make any statements at this time.

Did a family disagreement occur? Yes. Did Dez Bryant commit family violence against his mother? No.

They are here together today to show they do love and support each other, just as much as they did before the incident a week ago. But like all families, the Bryants have disagreements.

Mr. Bryant and his family understand the serious nature of family violence. They believe when all the facts are reviewed, Mr. Bryant will be cleared of any allegations of family violence.

Angela Bryant does not want charges filed against her son. Ms. Bryant has had an opportunity to speak with other people who witnessed the incident and has filed an Affidavit of Non Prosecution with the DeSoto Police Department. She recognizes that under the law, filing of the affidavit may not impact the legal outcome of her complaint. She asks that her affidavit be taken into consideration in deciding whether it is in the best interest of her family for this to continue in the legal system or allow them to resolve the issue as a family.

Dez and his mother believe this is a family matter that can be worked out through counseling.

They ask there not be a rush to judgment concerning their family. They also ask for your continued prayers and support for their family as they work through this matter.

Take a listen to the 911 call again and make your own assessment if it was just a “disagreement”.

      How many times have you seen a situation where you think someone would have been better off not talking? His lawyer probably determined that this was one of those situations. Having said that, this statement could have been faxed to media outlets. It would have served the same purpose.
