Cowboys' Brent arrested after car crash kills teammate

Dallas Cowboys NT Josh Brent was arrested on charges of intoxication manslaughter after flipping his car Saturday morning in an accident that killed his teammate and passenger Jerry Brown.

Brent was behind the wheel and speeding shortly after 2 a.m. local time when he hit the outside curb on route 114 in Irving, Texas, causing the vehicle to flip. Brown, a linebacker who was signed to the team’s practice squad in October, was unresponsive on scene and was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. Police believe alcohol was a contributing factor as Brent failed sobriety tests after the crash. If convicted, Brent could face up to 20 years in prison and a fine of $10,000.

Brent was set to start Sunday against the Bengals in place of the injured Jay Ratliff but will not make the trip. The Cowboys team plane left for Cincinnati after the team was informed of Brown's passing. Dallas is a 3-point road dog and odds are still on the board at online shops.

The ability of drinking and driving has gone on for decades. Back in the 70's and 80's no one worried about it. It has now hit a level where awareness causes concerns. It still will happen. It's called the "reaction move" Its the same thing our government and our airlines did after 9-11. This crap happens every night across this country...We never here about it because they didn't play Professional Football. Did anyone know Josh Brent had a previous drunk driving conviction before this incident? Probably not..

God only knows how many other drunken incidents prior that were either covered up or taken care of. We revere our athletes, few ever say no to them, and something tragic has to happen before they wake up. Why wasn't Brown driving, or was he in worse shape than Brent? If so, he's culpable too.
