DALLAS (AP) — A jury listened to audio recordings of police interrogation of a Dallas Cowboys player after a car crash that killed a teammate.

Prosecutors played the recordings Tuesday in the second day of former Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent's intoxication manslaughter trial in Dallas. In the interview, Brent was heard asserting that his out-of-state driver's license exempted him from Texas law.

Brent is accused of being driving drunk at the time of the December 2012 crash that killed Cowboys practice squad player Jerry Brown.

The trial judge has imposed a gag order on the attorneys in the trial.

Brent could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted of driving drunk and causing Brown's death. Jurors can also convict him of manslaughter.
