Former Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent has been sentenced to 10 years probation and 180 days in jail for his role in a 2012 car wreck. Brent was driving while intoxicated when he crashed his vehicle, killing teammate and friend Jerry Brown Jr.

The two men had reportedly been drinking at a club with other teammates prior to getting on the road. Brent had a .18 blood alcohol content, and was traveling at approximately 110 mph when he rolled his Mercedes.

During sentencing, the judge admonished Brent and the Cowboys for the incident.

“You are not the first Dallas Cowboy to kill someone with a vehicle,” District Judge Robert Burns said, “but I hope you’re the last.”

Aside from his probation and jail time, Brent must pay a $10,000 fine.
