Report: David Irving’s domestic violence case closed by police
Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle David Irving is reportedly off the hook in his domestic violence case — at least as far as the legal system is concerned.
Frisco police announced last month that they were investigating a claim of domestic violence against Irving after his ex-girlfriend, Angela Sanchez, appeared to accuse the 24-year-old of choking her. She later recanted the claims, but police continued to investigate. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, that investigation was closed as of Wednesday.
Frisco (TX) Police, who were investigating a since-recanted allegation of domestic violence against #Cowboys DE David Irving, closed his case yesterday, I’m told. The file was made inactive. This arose when a former girlfriend hacked his twitter account in late April.

Sanchez issued a statement saying she had a verbal argument with Irving and that she falsely accused him of getting physical. She referred to him as a “great father” and said she is looking forward to the couple raising their daughter together. Some of the initial allegations came after Sanchez appeared to hack Irving’s Twitter account, but the former Iowa State star gave his own reason for why Sanchez lashed out at him.
