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.

Police say neither man was wearing a seatbelt.

Earlier, there was also a witness that was right by Brent outside the car, and said Brent did absolutely nothing when she begged him to do something, and he just stood there apathetically. But this was only one witness(although I can't imagine she would have anything to gain by lying).

This story is taking one weird turn after another.

Under the limit and sober are not the same thing

Under the limit and sober are not the same thing

might as well be, you can't have more than 2 drinks and blow under the limit. 2 drinks doesn't do much to impair most people.

in any case he was certainly more fit to drive than brent was.
