DALLAS (AP) - Prosecutors are going to court to have the bond revoked for a Dallas Cowboys player awaiting trial on an intoxication manslaughter charge.

In court papers filed Thursday, prosecutors accused Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent of violating the terms of his release on bond by consuming alcohol and tampering with a device that detects the presence of alcohol in his body.

That makes him Brent a threat to the public, the documents state. A hearing is scheduled for Friday morning.

Brent has been free on a $100,000 bond since being charged in the Dec. 8 crash that killed practice squad player Jerry Brown Jr., a passenger in the car. Police say Brent had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit for driving.

Brent's football career remains on hold pending the outcome of this case. He's scheduled for a fall trial date.

The violations of the conditions of Brent's bond have been repeated and serious, said Debbie Denmon, spokeswoman for the Dallas County District Attorney's Office.

``Bonds are put in place for a reason,'' she said. She added that the conditions in Brent's case must be especially stringent because someone died.

``You don't get a free pass because of your celebrity status,'' she said.

George Milner, Brent's defense attorney, and Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple declined to comment.
