Blood-alcohol of Dallas’ Brent found twice the legal limit
Dallas, TX, United States (4E Sports) – Dallas Cowboys lineman Josh Brent was found to have a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit at the time of the one-car accident that killed his teammate Jerry Brown.
It was measured at 0.18, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Brent, 24, is charged with intoxication manslaughter, but was free on $500,000 bond Thursday.
Irving police spokesman, John Argumaniz, said officers conducted a field-sobriety test on the 321-pound Brent after the accident.
Brent was placed on the reserve non-football injury list on Wednesday, giving the club the option of whether or not to pay the remaining balance of his salary.
Police in suburban Irving say Brent was speeding early Saturday when his vehicle struck a curb and flipped. Brown was taken to a Dallas hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
