Josh Brent Drives Car Which Kills Cowboys Teammate

Former Dallas Cowboys star Josh Brent changed his life forever on Jan. 7.  He was exceeding the speed limit in Irving, Texas, when his car, which had teammate Jerry Brown Jr. in the passenger seat, hit a curb. Brown was killed, and Brent was arrested for intoxicated manslaughter. Brent retired from the NFL in June. If convicted at his 2014 trial, he could face up to 20 years in prison.
