According to NBC Sports DFW, former Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman and current scout Josh Brent is wanted for a parole violation that stems from his arrest in Coppell. Brent was arrested in Coppell on June 30 for Public Intoxication and had to be tased by police officials because he was resisting arrest and uncooperative with the officials.

In 2014, Brent was found guilty with intoxicated manslaughter from a 2012 crash that killed his former teammate Jerry Brown. Josh was sentenced to 180 days in prison and a 10 year probation. Brent’s arrest for public intoxication on Sunday violated his probation.

The former defensive tackle last played for the Cowboys in 2012 and was deactivated from the roster in 2014. In 2015, the Cowboys had announced Brent had joined the scouting department.
