Former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent is wanted in Dallas County on a probation violation in his 2014 intoxication manslaughter conviction, court records show.
The ex-Cowboy was arrested Sunday after a confrontation with police in a Wendy's parking lot in Coppell. He was booked in the Dallas County jail and then bonded out Monday.
Court records show a warrant for his arrest was issued Monday on a probation violation in connection with his conviction in the 2012 death of his friend and teammate Jerry Brown.
Brent received 10 years probation for Brown's death.
Before the fatal crash in Irving, Brent was driving 110 mph and had a blood alcohol level of 0.18, more than double the legal driving limit, according to court testimony.
As part of Brent's probation, the former football player is required to submit to drug and alcohol checks. He is also required to remain sober and clean during his probation.
Additionally, Brent is required to have an ignition interlock on his vehicle, prohibiting him from driving after drinking alcohol.
On Sunday in Coppell, Brent appeared intoxicated, police said.
A 911 caller reported there was a man sitting on the grass talking to himself outside a Coppell Wendy's. When officers arrived to check on the man, they identified him as Brent, Coppell police said.
The officers told Brent he would be arrested for public intoxication, but Brent was "uncooperative with the officers by resisting the officer’s attempt to be handcuffed," according to the police statement.
"I'm a Cowboy; you can Google me. I'm Josh Brent," Brent told police officers according to witnesses at the scene.
He was arrested on a charge of felony assault of a public servant and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest. He was booked in and then bonded out Monday at the Dallas County jail.
