DALLAS (AP) - The prosecution has rested its intoxication manslaughter case against former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent for a wreck that left a teammate dead.
Brent is charged in the December 2012 death of Jerry Brown in a crash as the two were driving home in the Dallas suburb of Irving.
Prosecutors presented a four-day case that Brent was drunk at the time. Jurors heard from police officers who administered field sobriety tests to Brent and later took him for a blood test that showed his blood-alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.
The defense denies Brent client was drunk.
Brent faces 20 years in prison if convicted.
Brown was a linebacker on the Cowboys' practice squad and was a teammate of Brent's at the University of Illinois.
