Brent tests positive for marijuana
DALLAS — Prosecutors say Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent, a former Illini and Bloomington Central Catholic star, has tested positive for marijuana while awaiting trial for a deadly car crash.
In a motion filed Thursday, Dallas County prosecutors asked a judge to revoke Brent’s $100,000 bond after he failed a urine test taken last month.
Brent is charged in the Dec. 8 car crash that killed Jerry Brown, a Cowboys practice squad player and also a former Illini. Police have accused Brent of driving with a blood-alcohol content more than twice the legal limit.
A hearing on the prosecutors’ motion has not been scheduled. Brent’s attorney, George Milner, did not immediately return a phone message.
