Dallas COWBOYS' Josh Brent charged with MANSLAUGHTER in DUI fatality
DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Cowboys Defensive Lineman Josh Brent has officially been indicted by a Dallas County grand jury, charged with Intoxication Manslaughter in a December 8 crash along Highway 114 in Irving that killed teammate Jerry Brown.
Brent, who had been placed on the Cowboys inactive roster, has remained with the team despite the charges facing him.
Brent was released from Jail December 9, the day he was expected to start in place of the injured Jay Ratliff against the Cincinnati Bengals. He did not travel with the team for that game, but did appear on the Cowboys sideline the next week in their home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
