Cowboys NT Josh Brent Tests Positive for Marijuana

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent, who authorities are accusing of killing teammate Jerry Brown in December 2012 in a car crash, tested positive for marijuana while awaiting trial, the Associated Press reports.

Police have accused Brent of driving that night with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit. What’s more, he was driving with a suspended Illinois driver’s license.

During his court hearing in May, Brent was required to provide a urine sample. It is this sample that provided the positive test for weed, which authorities are claiming is “not second-hand.”

“Given the defendant’s prior alcohol-related contacts and the severity of the charge in this case, it is the State’s belief that the defendant continues to pose a threat to the community,” prosecutors said in a motion.

Brent could receive a maximum of 20 years in jail if convicted of intoxication manslaughter.
