Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was arrested today on charges of intoxication manslaughter after driving when a one-car accident occurred early this morning in Irving, Texas. The accident killed his teammate Jerry Brown, a linebacker on the Cowboys practice squad. Both Matt Barrie of NBC 5 in Dallas and Ian Rapoport of NFL.com have confirmed the story.
This is not Brent’s first brush with the law over drunk driving. In 2009 Brent served jail time after getting a DUI while he was a student at the University of Illinois. Brown also attended Illinois where he was a college teammate of Brent’s.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has released a statement.
“We are deeply saddened by the news of this accident and the passing of Jerry Brown. At this time, our hearts and prayers and deepest sympathies are with the members of Jerry’s family and all of those who knew him and loved him.”
