Cowboys former defensive lineman on trial for vehicular manslaughter

According to Dallas County First Assistant District Attorney Heath Harris in his opening statement on Monday, January 13, former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent “was so impaired he was driving double the speed limit, in excess of 100 miles per hour,” causing the death of a teammate, Jerry Brown, in a 2012 car crash. This statement came during the prosecution’s argument in Brent’s vehicular manslaughter case.

Harris also said that local authorities found out Brent had more than twice the legal limit of alcohol in his system when he was subjected to a field sobriety test.

Brent plead not guilty to the manslaughter charges.
