You know, what we have here is a drinking mentality. And this incident makes it clear that it is time we took a long hard look at what is going on, because one thing is for sure: if alcohol was not legal, Jerry Brown would be alive.
Knuckledraggin My Life Away
Jerry Brown, a linebacker on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad, died early this morning in a single- car accident — and his teammate, Josh Brent, was arrested on charges of intoxication manslaughter.
According to police, Brent (see above) was driving at a high rate of speed at around 2:20 AM when his car “hit the outside curb,” flipped over and came to rest in the middle of the road.
When cops came to the scene, Brent was dragging Brown away from the vehicle … which had come to rest upside down and was on fire. Brown was unresponsive and was later pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Officers at the scene suspected alcohol to be a factor, so they gave Brent was given a field sobriety test, which he failed. His blood was later drawn at the hospital to determine his blood alcohol level. Those results are not yet known.
