DALLAS (AP) -- Police said Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent had a blood-alcohol content level more than twice the legal limit after the crash that killed teammate and friend Jerry Brown.

A crash report released by Irving police on Thursday said Brent’s BAC was measured at 0.189, well above the Texas legal limit of 0.08.

Authorities searching Brent’s Mercedes sedan also seized an unopened bottle of Cognac liquor, along with “multiple receipts” and the title to the car.

Brent was indicted Wednesday on one count of intoxication manslaughter in the Dec. 8 crash. He could face up to 20 years in prison if convicted, though he could also receive probation.

His attorney, George Milner, did not immediately return a phone message.
