Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent has been indicted on one count of intoxicated manslaughter ... after allegedly killing his teammate in a drunken car accident earlier this month.

Brent was indicted by a Texas Grand Jury today following the December 8th crash that killed his friend and teammate Jerry Brown. Brent was behind the wheel at the time of the accident.

Police in the Dallas suburb where the accident took place claim Brent was speeding when his Mercedes struck a curb and flipped over. Officers believe Brent was under the influence of alcohol.

There is no way Jerry Brown would want Josh to go to jail for 20 years. He made the choice to get in the car with someone drinking.
However, this IS the law so it's really stupid to drive while drunk.

Hey Josh You should have taken some of that big $$$$ that you made and had your teeth fixed. What a shame a big fat uneducated Negro who makes too much money for playing a game acts like a Negro, gets drunk and kills his friend.
Hopefully you will get the maximum penalty and be in jail until you are too old to p[lay

Please refrain from making sexual jokes about, including or referring to children. It is offense and socially, ethically, and morally unacceptable.

Rich, poor, black, white, Hispanic....it doesn't really matter does it? Point is he drove drunk and killed someone. I don't care if his teeth are nasty or what kind of car he drove. Too many people drive drunk or buzzed
