Former Cowboys defensive lineman and current Cowboys scout Josh Brent no longer faces arrest.
According to Jack Howland of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas County court records show that an arrest warrant for probation violation has been withdrawn.
Brent had been arrested on June 30 in a Wendy’s parking lot on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest. Calvin Watkins of TheAthletic.com has reported that Brent tested negative for alcohol and drugs, and that Brent simply had a mental breakdown, for which he currently is undergoing treatment.
A 2012 car crash that killed Cowboys teammate Jerry Brown resulted in a conviction of intoxication manslaughter for Brent, along with a jail sentence of 180 days. He remains on probation, the terms of which require him to avoid alcohol and drugs.
