Brent was speeding in the Mercedes he was driving, when it slammed into a curb. The car flipped at least once before coming to a rest. Irving police said Brent was given a field sobriety test and arrested for driving drunk and then for manslaughter when Brown died.
Brent said, "I am devastated and filled with grief. Filled with grief for the loss of my close friend and teammate, Jerry Brown. I am also grief-stricken for his family, friends and all who were blessed enough to have known him. I will live with this horrific and tragic loss every day for the rest of my life. My prayers are with his family, our teammates and his friends at this time."
Brown had played for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League. he also played arena football for the Jacksonville Sharks and the San Antonion Talons.
And of course Brent is a repeat offender. He was arrested for drink driving while he attended the University of Illinois.
