Dallas, TX (Sports Network) - Josh Brent's blood-alcohol level was reportedly
twice the legal limit when the Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman crashed his
car and killed teammate Jerry Brown on Saturday.
The Dallas Morning News, citing a law enforcement source close to the
investigation in a report Thursday, said Brent's blood-alcohol level was .18.
Brent was charged with intoxication manslaughter after the one-car accident
Saturday. Irving, Texas police determined he was operating his vehicle at a
high rate of speed and hit an outside curb that caused it to flip at least one
time, killing Brown.
The Cowboys, on Wednesday, placed Brent on the reserve/non-football illness
list. He will be able to remain with the team and attend a limited number of
meetings and functions.
