Default Josh Brent arrested after car crash kills teammate

Josh Brent arrested after car crash kills teammate

Quote:
Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent is being held in an Irving, Texas, jail on Saturday on an intoxication manslaughter charge connected to the death of Cowboys practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown Jr

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reported Saturday that Irving police confirmed Brent is being processed on the charge, a second-degree felony punishable by 2 to 20 years of imprisonment and a fine of up to $10,000.

According to a information report released by Irving police, Brent was behind the wheel after 2 a.m., traveling at a high rate of speed when the vehicle hit a curb, causing it to flip at least once before coming to the rest in the middle of a service road. When officers arrived on the scene, Brent was responsive and able to speak with officers. Brown, 25, was unresponsive and transferred to a local hospital, where he was later pronounced dead.

The Cowboys confirmed via a statement that Brent was not on the team charter to Cincinnati on Saturday ahead of the team's key Sunday matchup against the Bengals. Brent, a promising nose tackle, had been in line to start in place of injured veteran Jay Ratliff.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones released a statement on the matter:

"We are deeply saddened by the news of this accident and the passing of Jerry Brown," the statement read. "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."

Brent and Brown were college teammates at Illinois. Brent is in his third season with the Cowboys. Brown was signed to the Cowboys practice Squad on Oct. 24. He was previously on the Colts' practice squad before his Oct. 20 release.

It's a true shame, the kid who died was undrafted, and he was finally getting his chance to chase his dream and it was taken away from him because his team mate was too stupid to call a cab. I hope Brent is convicted.

From Jungle noise thread....

A few years ago my cousin got a ride home from a friend from a bar who was drunk and he did not know it. The dude hit a tree in front of my cousin’s house and my Uncle ended up identifying his son's body at the hospital and has never been the same. You see my cousin was trying to be responsible and knew he was too drunk to drive home himself. His friend convinced him not to call a cab because he "had only had one and was fine to take him home." The driver was unhurt and later tested with a high alcohol level. Did my cousin make the wrong decision....obviously. But the point is that we do not know what the situation was last Sat morning when Brown got into his car. Perhaps he was too intoxicated to realize that dude was drunk. It is really classless to blame the victim.

wtf?

Anyway, this was just a bunch of bad decisions all the way around. Brown shouldn't have gotten in the car, and Brent shouldn't have been driving. I like what Cowher said yesterday about players being suspended AND fined after a first DUI offense. To take it a step further, if you're convicted of 3 DUIs in your career you should be banned from the league for life. Being intoxicated and driving puts lives needlessly at risk and there's absolutely no excuse for doing it, especially as an adult and role model.
