DALLAS - There was a big development overnight in the intoxication manslaughter case involving Dallas Cowboys Josh Brent.

The Dallas Morning News has exclusively obtained the blood alcohol level for Brent, who was charged with intoxication manslaughter in the death of Cowboys teammate Jerry Brown, Jr.

A law enforcement source said his level was 0.18. , .08 is legally drunk. That means Brent was over two times the legal limit when he was involved in a fatal accident Saturday that killed Brown.

Investigators may present the evidence they have in the case to the Dallas County District attorney as early as today.

According to one online blood alcohol content calculator, a person Brent's size would have to drink about 20 shots over a four-hour period to reach that level. Brent is 6'2" and 320 pounds.
