How tragic. NFL linebacker Josh Brent was arrested on Dec. 8 on charges of intoxication manslaughter involving a car accident where a teammate died.

Josh Brent and a Dallas Cowboys team member of the practice squad, Jerry Brown, were allegedly involved in a car accident at 2:30AM where Jerry was killed.

Josh was speeding when his car “hit the outside curb” and flipped over, according to TMZ.

Josh was given a field sobriety test on the scene and failed. Jerry was unresponsive and declared dead at the hospital.

The report adds that Josh was booked on a second degree felony charge at 4:14 AM and is currently being held without bail.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones released a statement saying, “We are deeply saddened by the news of this accident and the passing of Jerry Brown. At this time, our hearts and prayers and deepest sympathies are with the members of Jerry’s family and all of those who knew him and loved him.”

This incident happens one week after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his girlfriend and himself.
