Prosecutors are going to court to have the bond revoked for a Dallas Cowboys player awaiting trial on an intoxication manslaughter charge.
In court papers filed Thursday, prosecutors accused Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent of violating the terms of his release on bond by consuming alcohol and tampering with a device that detects the presence of alcohol in his body.
That makes him Brent a threat to the public, the documents state. A hearing is scheduled for Friday morning.
Brent has been free on a $100,000 bond since being charged in the Dec. 8 crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr., a passenger in the car. Police say Brent had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit for driving.
Brent's football career remains on hold pending the outcome of this case. He's scheduled for a fall trial date.
The violations of the conditions of Brent's bond have been repeated and serious, said Debbie Denmon, spokeswoman for the Dallas County District Attorney's Office.
''Bonds are put in place for a reason,'' she said. She added that the conditions in Brent's case must be especially stringent because someone died.
''You don't get a free pass because of your celebrity status,'' she said.
George Milner, Brent's defense attorney, and Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple declined to comment.

Former Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher hung up the cleats this week, but it wasn’t for the lack of trying.
Urlacher couldn’t find the price he was looking for and decided it was time to go, but if there was a team he was interested in it would have been the Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys are switching over to the same defense (Tampa 2) as Urlacher played in Chicago and...
IRVING, Texas A skillion quickie impressions from the Dallas Cowboys' work at OTAs at Valley Ranch:
Tony Romo isn't Peyton Manning. But being sidelined by the cyst-removal surgery didn't prevent him from light sideline throwing or from counseling teammates. He was especially demonstrative in instructing Dez Bryant how to simulate the footwork needed to pretend he'...
Jason Garrett is not coaching for his job in 2013; at least that's what Cowboys owner, GM and kingpin Jerry Jones would have us believe about his embattled head coach.
"Well, no, no he's not ... to the last question: Is Jason coaching for his job? No," Jones told the NFL Network.
Jerry Jones may think that if he says Jason Garrett is his man enough times...
After two straight seasons of finishing with an 8-8 record, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo believes he’s a better player than what their record has shown.
“We were 8-8 the last couple of years, that doesn’t sit well with me,” Romo said, via ESPNDallas.com. “I don’t think I’m an 8-8 quarterback. I don’t think this organization is comfortable being 8-8. We’re...
I’ve always said the smart “playas” don’t have twitter, facebook, and especially instagram, but since many people don’t truly know the tricks of the trade, AND these social mediums are often used as a way to “hook up” men AND women will forever get caught up in its web.
Cowboys’ receiver Dez Bryant is now one of social media and Instagram’s latest victims. Two women...
The slander for Tony Romo was at an all-time high when he signed a new 6-year, $108 million deal with the Dallas Cowboys this off-season. Romo has only won 1 playoff game during his tenure as the Cowboys quarterback, and many questioned whether or not he has what it takes to lead a team to [...]

Tony Romo had his first long go with the press since signing his $108 million extension with the Cowboys this week, handing out the the same old platitudes about “haven’t achieved our goals” and “love this organization” Dallas fans have been hearing for years under Jerry Jones and their oft-criticized quarterback.
Then there was this:
“We were 8-8. That feels average...
As of this morning, Brian Urlacher is no longer an active NFL player. He took to Twitter to announce his retirement, and with it, the game lost one of the all-time great MLB's. Urlacher's tenacity was nothing if not palpable. The look on his face that was captured pre-snap by ESPN's zip line cameras was often downright scary, regardless of how much distance was between...
