Josh Brent Wanted For Violating Parole


According to NBC 5 in Dallas, Cowboys scout and former DT Josh Brent is wanted for a probation violation stemming from his recent arrest for public intoxication and resisting arrest.

Brent reportedly violated terms of his parole when he was arrested last week after he “became uncooperative” and was tased by police. Brent told officers that he was intoxicated at the time of his arrest.

Court records show that an arrest warrant was later issued, but Brent has yet to surrender to police.

Brent, 31, is a former seventh-round pick by the Cowboys back in 2010. He played four seasons in Dallas before retiring following the 2014 season. 

Brent served a 180-day prison sentence after he was convicted of intoxication manslaughter for an accident that resulted in the death of his teammate Jerry Brown. He was released from prison and finished out the remainder of his sentence in a substance abuse center.

The NFL later suspended Brent 10 games for his role in the incident.

Dallas eventually added Brent to their scouting department as an intern. 

For his career, Brent appeared in 40 games for the Cowboys and recorded 46 tackles, 1.5 sacks, a forced fumble and a pass defense.
