Cowboys' Brent may have violated bond

The SportsXchange

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent is scheduled for a court appearance on Friday morning to address a possible violation of his bond after a monitoring device detected alcohol.

Prosecutors will argue that Brent violated conditions of his bond and will seek to have it revoked before he goes to trial on a manslaughter charge in the death of former teammate Jerry Brown.

Brent's vehicle crashed on Dec. 8 in Irving, Texas, and Brown, a passenger, was killed. Brent's blood-alcohol level reportedly was twice the legal limit.

Brent's hearing on at 10 a.m. ET will be before Dallas judge Robert Burns.

According to, Brent says he didn't drink alcohol and that his attorneys were trying to find out how alcohol got into his system. ESPN also reported that the device has gone off several times.

Brent is awaiting trial on charges of intoxication manslaughter in Brown's death. He is free on $100,000 bond.
