Cowboys' Josh Brent jailed on drug charges
JUN 27, 2013 3:33p ET
FoxSportsSouthwest.com has learned that Brent failed the second test on June 19 – just two days before he was scheduled for a bond hearing before a judge due to allegations he’d failed a first test.
That hearing was rescheduled for July 19. Now, Brent will be held in jail without bond until that time, and may be back in jail while he awaits a September trial.
The Dallas County DA’s office alleges Brent’s “continued use of marijuana demonstrates a pattern of conduct in disregard of this court's authority to properly supervise his pre-trial release."
Following the car accident on Dec. 12, in which Brent was driving and Brown was a passenger, the court released Brent on a $100,000 bond with orders to refrain from alcohol or drug use.
The Cowboys, who have yet to release Brent, declined comment on the arrest.
