Dallas Cowboys lineman Josh Brent reportedly had a blood alcohol level that was more than double the legal limit when he crashed his car, killing his teammate Jerry Brown.
Brent, 25, had a blood alcohol level of 0.18, according to the Dallas Morning News, which cited an unnamed law enforcement source. The legal limit is 0.08.
The 321-pound Brent refused a breath alcohol test right after the accident early Saturday. Because there was a fatality, however, police were allowed to draw his blood without his permission.
Brent has been charged with intoxication manslaughter and is free on $500,000 bond.
Police said Brent was speeding Saturday when his car hit a curb and flipped. When police arrived at the scene, Brent was pulling Brown out of his car, which had caught fire. One witness, however, claims that she had to beg Brent to help Brown.
