Dallas Cowboys Josh Brent due in court June 21 after positive drug test for marijuana

DALLAS (AP) -- A court date has been scheduled for Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent after prosecutors say he tested positive for marijuana.

A spokeswoman for Dallas prosecutors said Monday that Brent is scheduled to appear June 21 before Judge Robert Burns.

Brent is charged with intoxication manslaughter, in connection with the Dec. 8 car crash that killed Jerry Brown, a Cowboys practice squad player and his college teammate.

Prosecutors have filed a motion asking Burns to revoke Brent's $100,000 bond after the positive marijuana test. Brent had been ordered to provide a urine sample for testing after a court hearing last month.

An attorney for Brent, George Milner, did not immediately return a phone message Monday.
