He was facing the second-degree felony after his ex-girlfriend accused him of going to her house and threatening to "beat her up."

At the time of the arrest, the Texans said in a statement that they were aware of the report involving Anderson, and were gathering information.

The Texans responded to the charges being saying they were happy for Anderson.


"I'm so happy for Darius and his family to be able to put this behind them," said Kelly Benavides, attorney for the Texans. "I commend the DA's office for taking a hard look at this case and when they realized they didn't have the evidence needed to prove the allegations they did the right thing and dismissed the case."
