Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent over legal alcohol limit, did little to help Jerry Brown

Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent over legal alcohol limit, did little to help Jerry Brown

According to a witness, Stacee McWilliams, she had to beg Brent to do more to help Brown who was trapped in the burning Mercedes while Brent was “pacing back and forth.”

She says, I jumped out and ran out toward the wreck. I yelled to Brent, “Are you OK? Are you OK?” Brent answered that he was fine.


‘”The fire became very hot, very bright, very big and then I started to hear screams coming from inside the vehicle and it was a man’s voice saying ‘Help me, Help, somebody help me.'” 

According to McWilliams, a resident of Irving, Tex., Brown was still alive at the time.


She continues, “[Brent] looked at me and said, ‘He won’t get out of the car,’ and I said to him, ‘Get him out of the car, you have to save him’.

“He abandoned him. I want people to understand that Josh Brent is not a hero. I keep hearing reports of how he was there to pull his friend from the fire, but he had to be coerced and pushed and begged and pleaded to get his friend out of the fire. And when he pulled him out, he just left him in the street. He didn’t tell him “Hang in there, help is on the way”. Nothing. He just left him there and I want the magnitude of that to be understood.”Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent over legal alcohol limit, did little to help Jerry Brown

A second witness, Pam Johnson, corroborated McWilliams story. But, she explained she believed Brent was in shock and didn’t know what to do.

Brown’s funeral is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 14,  in St. Louis. His family has invited Brent to attend the funeral.
