Cowboys linebacker Jerry Brown, 25, was killed in a car crash Saturday morning, and his teammate, nose tackle Josh Brent, has been charged with intoxication manslaughter in the incident, according to reports. Brent was arrested at 4 a.m. after an alleged hit-and-run and charged with intoxication manslaughter, according to the Star-Telegram. The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. as Brent was returning from partying at a club in Dallas. The Irving (Texas) Police Department later confirmed that Brown died in the crash and that Brent was charged, Pro Football Talk reports. “Officers at the scene believed alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash; therefore, Price-Brent was asked to perform field sobriety tests,” a statement from the Irving Police Department said, according to Pro Football Talk. “Based on the results of the tests, along with the officer’s observations and conversations with Price-Brent, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated. He was transported to an area hospital for a mandatory blood draw. “Once it was learned that the passenger of his vehicle had died as a result of the crash, Price-Brent was booked into the Irving City Jail on one count of intoxication manslaughter.” Brent is in his third year with the Cowboys. Brown was on the practice squad.
