Cowboys DL Josh Brent released from jail
Josh Brent has been released after less than two weeks spent in jail for failing a drug test and violating his bond agreement. Brent was arrested for intoxicated manslaughter last December as the driver in a car accident that killed Dallas Cowboys teammate and friend Josh Brown, Jr. Brent tested positive for marijuana in June, violating the conditions of his bond agreement. The failed drug test was his second since his indictment.
Brent is still awaiting trial for the incident. He was allegedly driving at speeds above 100 miles per hour when his car hit a curb and flipped. He failed a field sobriety test at the scene, and was found to have a blood alcohol content over twice the legal limit. Brown was unresponsive when police arrived, and later pronounced dead at the hospital. An autopsy showed that he was sober.
The Cowboys open training camp on July 21. If not for his legal troubles, Brent could have been competing to participate in the rotation at defensive tackle in the Cowboys' new 4-3 defense this season.
