Dallas mourn player´s death

9 December 2012 09:20

A Dallas Cowboys player has died after a car driven by an allegedly intoxicated team-mate flipped in the early hours of Saturday.

Jerry Brown, 25, was pronounced dead after arriving at hospital - with 24-year-old Cowboys nose tackle Joshua Price-Brent arrested on an intoxication manslaughter charge.

Irving Police Department spokesman John Argumaniz said that Price-Brent was allegedly speeding 'well above' the speed limit when he hit a kerb, causing his vehicle to flip at least once before landing in the middle of the road.

According to Argumaniz, when police arrived at the scene, they found Price-Brent pulling Brown from his 2007 Mercedes, which had caught fire.

It is not known where the men had been but Argumaniz said officers performed sobriety tests on Price-Brent and suspected alcohol was likely involved.

"Based on the results of the tests, along with the officers' observations and conversations with Price-Brent, he was arrested for driving while intoxicated," Argumaniz said.

Brown had only joined the Cowboys in October and was a linebacker for their practice squad.

The Cowboys play the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday.
