TABC Report: Club May Have Overserved A Drunk Josh Brent

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – An investigation by the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (TABC) has found evidence workers at a Dallas nightclub may have been negligent when they continued to sell alcohol to former Dallas Cowboys player Josh Brent on the night he later crashed his car, killing his friend and fellow teammate Jerry Brown Jr.

TABC officials say investigators found sufficient evidence against Beamers Private Club. The report alleges workers were selling "alcoholic beverages to an intoxicated person as well as conducting practices that promote excessive consumption by patrons."

Brent is facing intoxication manslaughter charges for the deadly December 8, 2012 crash that happened after he and Brown left the club in Dallas. At the time of his arrest Brent's blood-alcohol level was 0.189 — more than twice the legal limit. Police say Brent was traveling at a high rate of speed when he crashed his 2007 Mercedes in the 1400 block of the State Highway 114 service road, in Irving.

The troubled Dallas Cowboys DT retired from football on July 18, 2013. He walked away from the NFL just days after being released from jail. Brent had spent 10 days behind bars after failing a second drug test. A court order that authorized his release included new bond conditions.

Ultimately the TABC could fine, suspend or cancel Beamer's permit if it is determined that an employee sold or served an alcoholic beverage to an intoxicated person. But it will be a while before any action is taken because TABC officials say they won't move forward with the case against the club until after a ruling is made in Brent's criminal case.
