DALLAS — Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent is attending the memorial for teammate Jerry Brown, who died in a car accident that led to intoxication manslaughter charges against Brent.
Brent and team owner Jerry Jones were among those arriving at the service for Brown on a chilly Tuesday at Oak Cliff Bible Fellowship in Dallas.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says the team would “support Josh 100 percent in every way that we can.” A spokesman says the NFL has “no issue” with Brent being at team facilities.
Police in the Dallas suburb of Irving say Brent was speeding Saturday when his vehicle struck a curb and flipped. Brown was pronounced dead at a hospital.
