DALLAS (AP) - The Dallas County district attorney says he's not surprised that Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent failed two drug tests while out on bond facing an intoxication manslaughter charge.
Brent was charged after a December car crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown. Court records show his bond was revoked after he tested positive twice for marijuana.
District Attorney Craig Watkins told KRLD-FM last week that it's clear to him that Brent is struggling with addiction. Watkins says that Brent ``still uses alcohol and illicit drugs,'' and he wants him jailed for the crash.
Those comments drew protests from Brent's attorney, George Milner, who on Tuesday called them inappropriate. Milner says he'll ask a judge to force Watkins to comply with ethics rules.
