A Dallas County judge ordered Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent to wear an ankle monitor and restricted him from driving as a condition of his bond on an intoxication manslaughter charge.

At a hearing Tuesday morning, the 24-year-old's bond was also lowered from $500,000 to $100,000.

Brent is charged in the single-car accident that killed teammate Jerry Brown, Jr., on Dec. 8 in Irving.

The so-called SCRAM bracelet (SCRAM stands for Secure Continuous Remote Alcohol Monitoring) will continually test Brent's perspiration for his alcohol level.

Troubled celebrity Lindsay Lohan wore a similar monitor as a condition of her bond on a charge she recently faced.

Brent has a previous DUI conviction from 2009.

After Brown was laid to rest on Saturday in his hometown of St. Louis, Brent raised eyebrows when he appeared out of uniform on the sidelines of the Cowboys-Steelers game on Sunday.

The Cowboys now say he will not be allowed on the sidelines of any more games.

Brown's parents said they wanted Brent to continue to be supported by his teammates.
