Prosecutors seek to revoke Cowboys player's bond

Prosecutors say Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent has violated conditions of his bond and want it revoked pending trial on an intoxicated manslaughter charge.

Brent is free on a $100,000 bond after being charged in the Dec. 8 crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr., a passenger in the car. Police say Brent had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit for driving.

Prosecutors allege Brent violated conditions of his release by tampering with a device that monitors his body for the presence of alcohol. That device raised one such alert.

A hearing is scheduled for Friday morning on the bond revocation motion. Brent's football career remains on hold pending the outcome of this case. He's scheduled for a fall trial date.
