Dallas County, Texas prosecutors are once again attempting to revoke the bond of Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent, filing a motion on Thursday alleging that the 25-year-old has tested positive for marijuana, Selwyn Crawford of the Dallas Morning News reports.
On May 24, prosecutors sought to revoke Brent's $100,000 bond, filing a motion accusing the troubled defensive lineman had either been drinking alcohol or was around it, both of which are violations of his bail. Brent has been wearing a SCRAM bracelet on his ankle, which failed to log data on 22 occasions. At that time, State District Judge Robert D. Burns III declined to revoke Brent's bond, but did order further alcohol monitoring for Brent, who submitted a urine sample that day.
According to the district attorney's office, the urinalysis conducted on May 24 confirmed that Brent had "tested positive for marijuana and marijuana metabolite".
A hearing for the latest motion will take place on June 21.
Brent is awaiting trial on an intoxicated manslaughter charge following a Dec. 8 incident that claimed the life of Jerry Brown, a linebacker on the Cowboys' practice squad and Brent's former teammate at the University of Illinois. Brent's blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit when his Mercedes S600 struck a curb, overturned and caught fire.
The Cowboys placed Brent on the "non-football injury" list at the end of last season and the 2010 supplemental draft choice remains on the 90-man offseason roster. Brent, who established career-highs with five starts and 1.5 sacks in 2012, has been around the team's Valley Ranch headquarters, but is not expected to play for the team this season.
Brent faces up to 20 years in prison and his trial is scheduled to begin on Sept. 23.
