IRVING, TX (KLTV) -

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent has been arrested and charged with intoxication manslaughter following a late night accident that has left another Cowboy dead.

According to the Irving Police Department records, Brent was arrested and booked Saturday and charged with intoxication manslaughter.

The following statement was released by the Irving Police Department:

Irving, Texas, December 8 – The Irving Police Department is currently investigating a single vehicle fatality accident involving two Dallas Cowboys football players. Earlier this morning, at about 2:21 a.m., Joshua Price-Brent, a 24 year-old Irving resident, was driving westbound in the 1400 block of the NSR of E. S.H. 114. His vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed when it hit the outside curb causing the vehicle to flip at least one time before coming to rest in the middle of the service road.

When officers arrived, they contacted Price-Brent who was identified as the driver. He was responsive and able to speak with officers. Officers also located Jerry Brown Jr., a 25 year-old male, who was the passenger in the car. Brown was unresponsive and transported to an area hospital, where he was later pronounced deceased.

Officers at the scene believed alcohol was a contributing factor in the crash; therefore, Price-Brent was asked to perform field sobriety tests. Based on the results of the tests, along with the officer's observations and conversations with Price-Brent, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated. He was transported to an area hospital for a mandatory blood draw. Once it was learned that the passenger of his vehicle had died as a result of the crash, Price-Brent was booked into the Irving City jail on one count of Intoxication Manslaughter.

The investigation is still ongoing; therefore, limited information is available. A photo of Price-Brent is included below. Investigators are also looking for any witnesses who might have details about the incident and are asking that they contact the Irving Police Department at 972-721-2762.
