Dallas Cowboys' Nose Tackle, Josh Brent, Arrested After Killing Teammate in DUI Car Accident

Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent has been booked for intoxication manslaughter after a late night car accident left his passenger and Cowboys teammate Jerry Brown dead.

The one-car accident happened at around 2:20AM on Saturday (Dec. 8) morning. Brent was cruising down State Highway 114 near Irving, Texas when his car hit a curb and flipped over. According to reports, Brent was responsive when police arrived on the scene, but his passenger, 25-year-old Jerry Brown, a linebacker added to the Cowboys' practice squad this past October, was not moving. (Brown and Brent had been teammates prior at the University of Illinois.)

Brown was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. Irving, TX police suspected that alcohol was in play and administered a field sobriety test, which led to Brent's arrest. His DUI charge was upgraded to one count of intoxication manslaughter once Brown was pronounced dead. The investigation is ongoing. Sadly, Brent had been arrested on a DUI charge in college.

Brent has played 12 games with the Cowboys this season and had 35 tackles and 1 1/2 sacks.

"We are deeply saddened by the news of this accident and the passing of Jerry Brown," said Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in a statement. "At this time, our hearts and prayers and deepest sympathies are with the members of Jerry's family and all of those who knew him and loved him." The Cowboys will still play the Cincinnati Bengals in Ohio this Sunday.

This NFL tragedy comes on the heels of last week's murder/suicide of Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher. Belcher shot and killed his girlfriend last weekend before taking his own life in front of his Chiefs coach and the team's general manager.

112 Hints At A Christian Music Collaboration With Kanye West

Kanye West's highly-anticipated album, Yandhi is nowhere to be found, but that doesn't mean the rapper hasn't been working on new music. In fact, Ye is looking into creating new tunes in the Christian music genre. According to 112's Slim, the R&B group is teaming up with Kanye to produce new music that will draw the new generation to church.

Slim made the revelation during an interview with TMZ on Monday (Jan. 21). Unfortunately, Slim wouldn't drop too many details about the project, but hinted that the collaboration could or could not happen.

"Kanye being a musical genius, he’ll do an album and then scrap it," he said. "Whatever happens, it’s something that God wanted to happen."

Slim's latest comments come shortly after a video surfaced online of 112 serenading Kim Kardashian with a rendition of their single "Cupid" on FaceTime. The clip went viral, prompting suspicion of a possible collaboration.

Aside from music, Slim said he also talked to Kanye to see where he was mentally. "Kanye is in a real good place," he revealed. "We were talking about things that were more spiritual and he’s in a real good place right now."

Stay tuned to see if the Kanye West and 112 Christian collaboration actually happens.

Chris Brown To Sue Rape Accuser For Defamation

Chris Brown is reportedly gearing up to take legal action against the woman who accused him of raping her at a hotel in Paris. The singer will reportedly sue her for defamation, TMZ reports.

Brown's Parisian lawyer, Raphael Chiche, says his client adamantly denies the allegations and plans to challenge them in court. "Chris Brown is free. No lawsuits were filed against him," Chiche said in a statement. "He vigorously challenges the charges against him. A complaint for slanderous denunciation will be filed tomorrow with the public prosecutor of Paris."

As previously reported, Brown was arrested on Jan. 22, after a 24-year-old woman filed a complaint claiming that he violently raped her in his Paris hotel. He was released from police custody without charges. Shortly after the incident, Brown took to Instagram where he claimed that the woman was lying. Another woman also jumped to the singer's defense, stating that he was not at the scene at the time of the alleged assault.

While the singer is free to leave the country, an official investigation into the alleged incident is still ongoing. It does not appear that Brown or his legal team have filed the defamation suit at this time.
