As if the news couldn’t get worse for Dez Bryant, the 911 call from his mother, which was released Tuesday, adds another disturbing element to an already disturbing case.
According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Angela Bryant said during her call to authorities her son “tried to kill me,” and that she was going to “put an end to it today.”
Angela D. Bryant told police that her son hit her across the face with a ball cap, pulled her hair, tore her shirt and bra, and repeatedly struck her, according to records released by the DeSoto Police Department.
“Babe, I can’t keep letting him do this. . . . I can’t let him do me like this. I’m tired. I’m going to put an end to it today,” the 37–year-old woman could be heard saying during the call.
Dez Bryant was arrested for misdemeanor family violence, after he allegedly grabbed his mother’s hair and hit her.
According to the report, the assault started at Angela Bryant’s home, but she called from a friend’s house nearby before he arrived there.
“He won’t go home. I keep telling him to go home. He won’t go,” she told the dispatcher.
She told the dispatcher no one was using drugs or alcohol, and when asked if anyone was armed, said “not yet” but that her son had picked up a ball and tried to hit her with it.
“And then he grabbed me. You’ll see when you get here how my clothes look,” she told the dispatcher.
This has been described as Bryant’s quietest offseason to date, but the last 24 hours have been anything but.
