The club where Cowboys’ players had been drinking before a vehicle accident killed one player is being investigated by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission. The club could be subject to fines or license revocation if any violations are found.
At the scene of the accident, the driver of the car involved in the crash, Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Price Brent, would not reveal to police the name of the club when the players had been before the accident. Fellow player Jerry Brown Jr., a passenger in the car, was killed. A radio station later revealed that Private Dallas was the name of the club.
“We’re establishing where they had been and if they were sold alcohol while they were drunk,” said TABC spokeswoman Carolyn Beck. The TABC planned on interviewing patrons, servers, bartenders and any other witnesses who were in the club.
Brent declined to provide a blood sample at the scene, and was taken to an area hospital for a mandatory blood draw because a death had resulted from the crash. Officers stated there were clues that indicated Brent did not possess the “mental and physical faculties to operate a motor vehicle” after field sobriety tests.
The prayers of the Parker Law Firm staff are with the family and friends of Jerry Brown Jr.
