Cowboys player’s attorney: $500,000 bond is excessive
IRVING, Texas (AP) — Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent remained in custody Sunday on $500,000 bond, one day after being charged with intoxication manslaughter after what police said was a drunken-driving accident that killed close friend and teammate Jerry Brown.
Brent’s attorney called the bond amount excessive and beyond what the team had authorized him to post.
Lawyer George Milner said he was working to reduce the bond but was doubtful his client would be released from the Irving jail until Monday. Milner also said he was trying to get the Cowboys to authorize payment of a higher bond amount.
Irving police said Brent was speeding in the Dallas suburb when the vehicle he was driving hit a curb and flipped about 2:20 a.m. Saturday. The 25-year-old Brown was found unresponsive at the scene and was pronounced dead at a hospital.
She remembered her eldest grandchild — one of 20 — as a man who would stop at nothing to realize his dream of becoming a professional football player.
“They praised him,” she said. “They were all really upset and crying” when they found out about his death.
“I’m very excited an anxious to meet my granddaughter,” she said. “She will be here in 2 more months. She is going to be well loved.
“I have scrapbooks and everything to show her what type of father she had. My youngest son, Jeremiah, will be there to push her on to ensure that she can be the best woman that she can be.”
