IRVING, Texas--Tragedy has struck again in the NFL but this time it involves two teammates from the Dallas Cowboys. Early Saturday morning around 2:20 a.m. Cowboys linebacker Josh Brent was involved in a one-car accident which killed Cowboys practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown. The accident took place in a Dallas surburbs whereas Brent was traveling at a high rate of speed when the vehicle hit a curb and flipped over. The responding officers witnessed Brent dragging Brown from the small-braze wreckage. Brent was arrested and charged at the scene once police officers discovered Brown was unresponsive and later pronounced dead at the hospital. Brent is facing intoxication manslaughter charge and may face 2 to 20 years in prison. Apparently, this is not Brent first time facing DUI charges. In February 2009, Brent was arrested near Illinois campus for driving under the influence, driving on a suspended license and speeding, according to Champaign County, Ill., court records. This tragic incident proves how DUI is still a serious issue in America. What do you guys think?
