DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Cowboys lineman Josh Brent is out of jail again, but under new conditions that include wearing a drug-detection patch at all times and not driving at all.
Brent was freed Sunday morning on bond. He’s charged with intoxication manslaughter in a December car crash that killed Cowboys practice squad player and close friend Jerry Brown.
Brent was jailed June 27 after testing positive for marijuana a second time.
Prosecutors have filed a motion to have Brent’s $100,000 bond revoked after the two drug tests.
The bond conditions approved by a judge Sunday include wearing a drug patch and not driving under any circumstances, in addition to previous alcohol monitoring.
Prosecutors had no immediate comment. An attorney for Brent did not return phone messages.
