DALLAS As Josh Brent awaits trial in September on intoxication manslaughter charges in the death of friend and teammate Jerry Brown Jr., the Dallas Cowboys player may be about to face another courtroom test. We have learned the Dallas County District Attorneys Office is prepared to allege that Brent violated the terms of his bond by recently testing positive for marijuana. Brent was in court on May 24 when authorities alleged that his SCRAM device detected alcohol use, which would be a violation of his 100,000 bond arrangement. But the court decided that while Brent missed an assortment of bond hearings, there was no alcohol use violation. However, the same urine specimen taken that day may have demonstrated marijuana use, which the DAs office is prepared to say is in conflict with a specific order from the court to "NOT use or consume any marijuana as long as your case is before the court." The DAs office believes the result of the urinalysis is "not indicative of second-hand exposure." Brent was behind the wheel at the time of the December 8, 2012 crash Brent and had a blood-alcohol content of 0.189, more than twice the legal limit, according to Irving police. His May 24 court date resulted in an order that he wear an additional alcohol-monitoring device that takes a picture as it takes a sample as to show the physical location of the 25-year-old Brent. If found in violation here, Brents bond could be revoked and he could be jailed. If found guilty of intoxication manslaughter, Brent could be given up to 20 years in prison or probation.
