    DALLAS -- Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant made a surprise appearance at a rally Saturday against domestic violence.

    In the event dubbed "Dallas Men Against Abuse," Bryant apologized for his role in a domestic altercation in July. He was arrested for allegedly hitting his mother, but no charges were filed. After the rally, Bryant said he wanted to talk only about football.

    "Here's all you need to know," he said. "I'm done with domestic abuse."

    NFL Hall of Famer Roger Staubach expressed dismay that public campaigns and rallies must still be held to tamp down the instances of domestic violence that leave women battered and bruised.

    ''It's amazing that we even need to have this rally,'' Staubach told the crowd, ''but the momentum needs to take shape.''

    Dez Bryant made a surprise appearance at a "Men Against Abuse" rally in Dallas on Saturday and said he was done with domestic abuse during an impromptu speech. The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver made headlines last July when he was arrested on charges of misdemeanor domestic violence after he allegedly hit his mother Angie Bryant and pulled her hair during an argument. No charges, however, were ever filed.
