Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent was driving at least 110 mph before losing control of his car in an accident that killed his teammate, according to police documents obtained by NBC 5.

Brent, who was moved to the team's reserve/non-football injury/illness list, has been charged with intoxication manslaughter in the death of Cowboys practice squad member and friend Jerry Brown Jr.

On December 7, traffic surveillance cameras show Brent's four-door Mercedes S600 driving prior to the accident, reportedly as fast as 134 mph on the way home from a nightclub.

Police reports say the car flipped after Brent lost control and hit a curb. The two players were not wearing seat belts, investigators said.

Brent's blood-alcohol level was more than twice the state's legal limit, according to police.

The Cowboys and Brown's mother have attempted to support Brent in the wake of the tragedy, though the team did ask him to refrain from appearing on the sideline late in the 2012 season.
