Listening to 103.3.

Josh Brent is in jail for alleged Drunk Driving. He was arrested and charged with vehicular manslaughter. Cowboys Practice Squad Player Jerry Brown (LB) who was a former teammate of Brent from College has been pronounced dead. Thoughts and prayers with his family.

Quote:

Cowboys players and coaches are still on the plane. They asked everyone else (media, guests, broadcast crew) to get off plane.

Holy ish. I guess Lissemore will be starting at NT if Ratliff is still out. With Ratliff's injury issues, it looks like NT just shot up the draft needs list.

Wonder who the other teammate is.

Whatever case, I'd cut him.

Speculation is that LB Jerry Brown is the victim.

There are no words for how senseless something like this is. A man lost his life cause you didn't want to call a taxi. Or a friend. Or a teammate. That is what the VH means next to the charge right? Vehicular?

Terrible tragedy for the brown family.

If Brent isnt cut, i don't know how I'll react.

So, did he get drunk, kill someone while driving, not report and get on the team plane as if nothing happened? I want details!
