An arrest warrant issued for ex-Dallas Cowboys player and current team scout Josh Brent after he was accused of violating probation stemming from a 2014 intoxication manslaughter charge has been withdrawn, Jack Howland of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.  This according to Dallas County court records.

A judge withdrew the warrant Monday afternoon. It wasn’t immediately clear why the action was taken.

Brent was arrested on June 30 in a Wendy’s parking lot in Coppell on charges of public intoxication and resisting arrest, police said. He’s been on probation since he was convicted of intoxication manslaughter in Dallas in 2014 in connection with a fatal December 2012 crash in which his Cowboys teammate and close friend Jerry Brown died.

He was sentenced to 180 days in jail and 10 years’ probation, the maximum time allowed for a probationary term.

His June 30 arrest represented a violation of his probation, according to the warrant.

Officers responded to a report of a man sitting in the grass and talking to himself in the 800 block of MacArthur Boulevard and determined the man was drunk. Police said officers told Brent he was going to be arrested on suspicion of public intoxication and he failed to cooperate, resisting being put in handcuffs.
