Former Sooners’ standouts James Hanna and DeMarco Murray and their Dallas Cowboys’ teammates were dealt tragedy in December when two of their teammates were involved in a car crash. Practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown was killed while nose tackle Josh Brent is awaiting trial for intoxication manslaughter. He could receive between two to 20 years in prison.
Recent reports released said that Brent was going at least 110 miles per hour. Brent’s blood-alcohol level was .189, more than twice the legal limit.
So why is this appearing on the Oklahoma blog? Yes, Brent and Brown formerly played for Illinois, but they are just one DUI case of many athletes that Sports Illustrated senior writer Thomas Lake wrote about in his story this week, Drinking and Driving and Dying.
