Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent has been indicted on one count of intoxication manslaughter for his role in the car accident that claimed the life of teammate Jerry Brown on Dec. 8.
Police in Irving, Texas, say Brent was speeding when his vehicle struck a curb and flipped, killing Brown, who was a passenger in the car.
Brent’s blood-alcohol limit was 0.18, more than twice the legal limit.
Intoxication manslaughter carries a maximum sentence of 20 years in prison. Brent could be eligible for probation. He is currently out of jail on $100,000 bond.
