Judge refuses to throw out ex-Cowboy's blood test
DALLAS (AP) -- A judge has refused to throw out a blood test that showed former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent was driving drunk the night of a crash that killed a practice squad player.
Josh Brent's attorneys argued his blood was drawn under an improper warrant. They wanted the results of the test excluded at trial. Police in suburban Dallas say Brent was driving with a blood-alcohol level more than twice the legal limit.
Judge Robert Burns on Friday denied their request.
Brent is charged with intoxication manslaughter in connection with a Dec. 8 crash that killed Jerry Brown, his close friend and college teammate.
He could get 20 years in prison if convicted.
Brent announced his retirement from football last month.
