Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was arrested early Saturday morning for intoxication manslaughter after a one-vehicle accident that killed teammate Jerry Brown.
Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz said the accident happened about 2:20 a.m. Saturday in the Dallas suburb. Brent was speeding when the vehicle hit a curb and flipped at least once, Argumaniz said.

Doesn't look good for his career prospects:
"In June 2009, Brent was sentenced to two years probation and 60 days in jail as part of a plea agreement stemming from a drunken driving arrest in Champaign County, Illinois."
According to police, Brent was heading westbound on the 1400 block of the service road of East State Highway 114 at a high rate of speed. His car “hit the outside curb,” flipped over and came to rest in the middle of the road.
Brent was responsive and talking to officers when police arrived, authorities said. Brown, the passenger, was unresponsive and rushed to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
Brent was given a sobriety test and failed, according to police. He was taken to a hospital where his blood was drawn. He was then taken to the Irving City Jail and booked with a second degree felony charge.
It is not immediately clear what his blood alcohol content was.

Why does it seem like the passenger is always killed but the driver survives in situations like these?
Rogue Leader= Obese coward who didn't attend MSU and has no college degree
Thats pretty terrible. It will be interesting to see how the NFL handles the situation with a game tomorrow since this is the Cowboys, not the Chiefs. It should be business as usual just like last week, but I wouldn't blink an eye if there was suddenly a 2nd MNF game this week.
Why is it so hard to call for a cab or a limo?

Especially when these guys make so much fucking money.
This....If I knew a professional athlete at any level I would offer up my driving services for a nominal wage(and use their cars). What's worse is the number(like this case)where they have multiple drunk driving incidents. Fucking call a car service if you don't want to end up on TMZ crawling out of a yellow cab.
yeah, i will never understand these guys, you have the money if you are going to go out and get plastered, have a driver
This looks really bad on the NFL. Two really bad deaths close to each other. But it is the NFL so not too big a deal will be made. Now if this was the NBA...
how bout them cowboys

There will be more talk about eliminating kickoffs than this.
Car caught on fire and he tried to pull him out....
I'd like to make a comment about Bob Costas now, but I'm sure some oversensitive people will get butt-hurt over it so I'll refrain....I imagine he wasn't wearing a seat belt, gotta wonder if the victim knew about the driver's past troubles with the law over drinking and driving....if only he had been smokin' weed instead
2 separate reasons to have this sent to Wells, could be a first

I hope most teams have some thing like this, from Chris Kluwe the Vikings kicker:
Chris Kluwe @ChrisWarcraft
I don't know what other teams' policy is, but our security chief will pick us and our car up if necessary. No excuse for impaired driving.
Legit question that is asked over and over again when these stupid effs do this. No answer here....it's gone on for many years and will continue for many more.
Well, after last week, Costas MUST comment on this as well.
So how does he end his statement?
" The fact is, if Josh Brent had not been driving"(or "had not been drinking") ", Jerry Brown would be alive today."
Since he called for banning guns he should call for the banning of alcohol...Or maybe driving, or cars even.
Not surprised that a kicker's twitter handle is "ChrisWarcraft."
if the driver had been killed and the passenger walked, i would say play the game. the way it worked out makes it a tougher decision.
and what kind of merc flips over after hitting a curb?

Leonard Little is not impressed
I assume speed + bad reaction time due to alcohol + maybe over correcting can make you flip pretty easily.
"The fact is, if John D. Rockefeller hadn't perfected refining, we wouldn't have the gasoline to fuel internal combustion engines, and Jerry Brown would be alive today"
Man just when you thought it couldn't get worse for Illini football this year. These two guys lived in my dorm freshman year and I believe they were best friends. According to Juice Williams on twitter Brown was prepared to make his NFL debut tomorrow. Obviously these guys did not make very good decisions but this is nothing short of tragic. Brown is dead, and I can't imagine how Brent will live knowing he killed his close friend.
I, too, await Bob Costas' speech denouncing alcohol and assume he'll appear on The O'Reilly Factor to call for stricter controls on drinking. The NFL's alcohol culture is getting out of hand, etc etc.
