Josh Brent Behind Bars; Fails Another Drug Test

COURTESY KXAS

By Jane Geelan

Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent is back behind bars. Brent was booked into Dallas' Lew Sterrett Justice Center on Thursday after a second positive drug test for marijuana.

According to court documents, Brent was tested for marijuana on June 19 and on June 25 a positive result from that test was confirmed.

This is the second time the Cowboys player has tested positive for the drug since his arrest on an intoxication manslaughter charge.

Brent is charged with intoxication manslaughter in connection with a Dec. 8, 2012, car crash that killed teammate and best friend Jerry Brown Jr. Police said Brent had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit for driving.

Brown was on the Cowboys practice squad and a college teammate of Brent's.

No bond has been set in this latest incident. Initially Brent was free on a $100,000 bond after being charged in the crash that killed Brown.
