Cowboys LB Killed In Car Crash, Another Arrested For Intoxication Manslaughter

Dallas Cowboys DT Joshua Price-Brent (pictured, right thanks Irving Police Department)
has been charged with intoxication manslaughter by Irving (TX) police after his car flipped the curb while driving at a high rate of speed a little after 2AM local time this morning...

And what does the HQ say about nothing good happening after 1AM...???

Brent was the driver of the car that also had practice squad LB Jerry Brown as passenger. Jones was taken to a local hospital where he was pronounced dead.

After Brown was pronounced dead, Irving police booked Price-Brent on the Intoxication Manslaughter charge.

Here's an episode of "Inside the Huddle" where Brent was a guest of Jay Ratliff and Matt Barrie last year...

PM UPDATE: Jerry Jones released the following statement:

"We are deeply saddened by the news of this accident and the passing of Jerry Brown. At this time, our hearts and prayers and deepest sympathies are with the members of Jerry's family and all of those who knew him and loved him."

Regrettably, it's not the only time that Brent has been busted for a DUI-related offense...

He was busted while at the University of Illinois in 2009 for DUI, driving on a suspended license and speeding. He was sentenced to 60 days in jail, two years probation, 200 hours of community service and a fine. As part of the plea bargain for agreeing to the DUI charge, prosecutors dropped an aggravated DUI/no valid driver's license charge.

Here's the first press conference from the Irving PD with Public Information Officer John Argumaniz...
