Report: Cowboys' Jerry Brown wasn't drunk

Posted: Updated:
DALLAS -

A surprising twist was revealed in autopsy report on the Dallas Cowboys player killed in a drunken driving accident – Jerry Brown, Jr. was not legally drunk when he died.

Brown died on the morning of Dec. 8. He and fellow player Josh Brent had been drinking at Club Privae in northwest Dallas. After they left, Brent crashed his 2007 Mercedes on the service road of Highway 114 near Cistercian Road.

While reports have shown Brent was driving with a blood alcohol level that was more than twice the legal limit, Brown's autopsy report showed he wasn't legally drunk when he died. He had a vitreous alcohol level of .079, which is just below the legal limit of .08.

The report also showed he died of blunt force injuries of the head and neck.

Brent is currently free on bond while awaiting trial for intoxication manslaughter.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission is still investigating the bar where the two men had been drinking.
