Judge orders more monitoring for Cowboys DT Josh Brent
Brent is charged in the Dec. 8 crash that killed teammate Jerry Brown Jr. in which police say Brent’s blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit. He has been free on a $100,000 bond since the crash.
Prosecutors say Brent violated the terms of his release on bond by consuming alcohol and tampering with a device that detects the presence of alcohol in his body.

The violations of the conditions of Brent’s bond have been repeated and serious, said Debbie Denmon, spokeswoman for the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office.
“Bonds are put in place for a reason,” she said. She added that the conditions in Brent’s case must be especially stringent because someone died.
