According to the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent had a blood alcohol level of 0.18 during the night in which he wrecked his car which ended up killing teammate Jerry Brown.  This means that his blood alcohol was over twice the legal limit. Irving police, who are not commenting on the case, have previously said that the 321-pound Brent failed field sobriety tests immediately after the deadly crash. He refused a breathalyzer test but because his wreck resulted in a death, authorities could draw his blood against his will. Brent’s blood alcohol level was reportedly 0.18. According to one online blood alcohol content calculator, a person Brent’s size would have to drink about 20 shots over a four-hour period to reach that blood alcohol level. “That’s just a lot of alcohol,” said Richard Alpert, a veteran prosecutor with the Tarrant County district attorney’s office and the leading national authority on drunken driving prosecution. “The real story now is where he was drinking. So we’d be following his credit card trail, we’d be checking social media to see where or if anyone was posting about his drinking.” The maximum sentence for his charge is 20 years. It’s really sad where irresponsibility can lead people.  Brent’s life is now ruined after killing one of his friends and teammates while driving drunk.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";
