It's not a secret that Josh Brent was intoxicated the night he was driving and got into a car accident that took the life of his friend and teammate Jerry Brown. What is somewhat shocking, however, was Brent's blood-alcohol content on the night the accident took place. According to the Dallas Morning News, a "law enforcement source close to the investigation" says that Brent had a BAC of 0.18.

That's more than twice the legal limit.

Now, keep in mind that Josh Brent weighs 321 pounds. The Dallas Morning News report says that means Brent would have needed to consume about 20 shots over a four hour period to get his BAC that high.
