DALLAS – Prosecutors say Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent has violated conditions of his bond and want it revoked pending trial on an intoxicated manslaughter charge.
Brent is free on a $100,000 bond after being charged in the Dec. 8 crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr., a passenger in the car. Police say Brent had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit for driving.
Prosecutors allege Brent violated conditions of his release by tampering with a device that monitors his body for the presence of alcohol. That device raised one such alert.
A hearing is scheduled for Friday morning on the bond revocation motion. Brent's football career remains on hold pending the outcome of this case. He's scheduled for a fall trial date.
