  • Autopsy: Cowboys' Brown Jr., killed in crash, was sober

    DALLAS -- An autopsy has found that Dallas Cowboys practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr. was sober when he was killed in a crash that led to an intoxication manslaughter charge against the teammate at the wheel.

    The Dallas County Medical Examiner's Office reported Thursday that Brown died of head and neck trauma when their vehicle overturned. He had a dislocated neck, a severely bruised spine and a blood alcohol content of 0.056 percent. That's well below the Texas drunken driving standard of 0.08 percent.

    Police have said Cowboys nose guard Josh Brent, who was driving, had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit when after the Dec. 8 crash in Irving, a Dallas suburb. He remains free on $100,000 bond.

    Brilliant decision to get behind the wheel and drive drunk when there were many other options available, including letting Brown drive. He deserves everything he gets, but someone who is sober, can see that his buddy is drunk, should know better than to let him drive. If he insisted on it, then take a cab home.
