Cowboys’ Brown Was Legally Sober at Crash, Morning News Reports

Jan. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Jerry Brown Jr.’s blood alcohol level was below the legal driving limit when he died after the car his Dallas Cowboys teammate Josh Brent was driving crashed, the Dallas Morning News reported.

An autopsy report released yesterday by the Dallas medical examiner said Brown died from blunt force injuries to the head and neck, the newspaper said.

A reading from Brown’s blood found an alcohol level of 0.056, below Texas’ legal driving limit of 0.08, the Morning News said.

Cowboys defensive tackle Brent, 24, was charged on Dec. 8 with intoxication manslaughter following the single-car wreck in Irving, Texas, that killed Brown. Brent had a blood alcohol level that was more than twice the legal limit, the Morning News reported.
