On the night Jerry Brown was killed in a car crash, he and teammate Josh Brent were among several Dallas Cowboys at the club Privae, according to a USA Today report. The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission and Irving police are investigating the club to see if alcohol was "served to somebody who was intoxicated, which is illegal in Texas," TABC spokeswoman Carolyn Beck told the paper. Brown was a passenger with Brent when the car flipped after hitting a curb. The crash occurred within five miles of Privae. Brent was charged with intoxication manslaughter, and posted $500,000 bail. The Cowboys also will conduct their own investigation to find out how many players were at the club, coach Jason Garrett told the Star-Telegram. "We're not into that process right now," Garrett told the paper. "We're a couple of days away from that. I think we're all kind of trying to get our arms around what happened. We're all trying to be very respectful to Jerry's family and certainly Josh's situation and really just trying to get through today. That's where we are. In response, Privae posted a statement on their website: "In regard to the auto accident that took the life of Dallas Cowboy Jerry Brown, we are saddened by the events of the weekend. Our hearts go out to Mr. Brown's family and friends, and the entire Cowboys organization. Privae Dallas is a club that offers its guests a special level of privacy and often caters to celebrities. The safety of our guests is very important to us, and our staff is trained to follow the regulations set forth by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC). "We are fully cooperating with the TABC and Irving police, and respect that the event is under investigation. Because of that, we must ask that all questions be directed to the Irving police department and their team."
