Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was arrested Saturday on suspicion of intoxication manslaughter after his Mercedes flipped, leaving teammate Jerry Brown Jr. fatally injured, police in Irving, Texas, said.

Brent's car was allegedly traveling at a high speed when it hit a curb, flipped and caught fire, according to Irving police, who said officers on the scene "believed alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash."

The car traveled about 900 feet after hitting the curb, said police spokesman John Argumaniz.

When officers came upon the scene, Brent was dragging Brown, 25, from the car, officials told reporters.

Brown was taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.


This is a bad year for NFL players and employees. My condolences go out to both of their families. That being said, why the hell are you out drunk... DRIVING at 2AM the day before a game? One very bad mistake that unfortunately ended one life and will mean prison for another.

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Joshua Brent has been arrested and charged with intoxicated vehicular manslaughter..that claimed the life of Cowboys practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown.
According to the Dallas Morning News, Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Joshua Brent has been arrested and charged with intoxicated vehicular manslaughter by the Irving Police Department following an accident on East State Highway 114 early Saturday morning that claimed the life of Cowboys practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown.

Brent and Brown were teammates at the University of Illinois.

According to the report, Brent was traveling at a high rate of speed when his vehicle "hit the outside curb", causing it to flip over and come to rest in the middle of the road. Brent was given a field sobriety test, which he failed, and had blood drawn at a local hospital before he was booked on the second-degree felony by the Irving PD. According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com, Brent was trying to drag Brown from the burning car when the police arrived on scene.

Brown was transported to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead....

This is one of those topics where I don't deserve to render an opinion because when I was in my late teens and twenties, I drove a vehicle impaired probably 3 or 4 times a week and never had an accident or a DUI. It's terrible the other guy was killed - and hopefully Mr. Brent can someday forgive himself.

When we are young, we don't realize how precious life is.

We were all idiots once, but when you are making an NFL salary you can afford a fucking cab or a driver for the night. Sad case which makes no sense to me.

I often think back and remember the days I didn't worry about tomorrow because I knew it would come. That changed pretty quick when I stopped healing as fast as I used to lol


I read he was an expecting father and was realizing he needed to slow his life down because he wanted a family, wife and children.

I want people to understand that Josh Brent is not a hero. I keep hearing reports of how he was there to pull his friend from the fire but he had to be coerced and pushed and begged and pleaded to get his friend out of the fire and when he pulled him out, he just left him in the street. He didn’t tell him ‘hang in there, help is on the way.’ Nothing. He just left him there and I want the magnitude of that to be understood.
