Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Josh Brent who was charged with intoxication manslaughter was going at least 110 mph at the time of the deadly crash that killed his teammate and close friend, according to police documents obtained by Ray Villeda of NBC 5 in Dallas.

Police have said that defensive lineman Josh Brent's blood-alcohol content level was more than twice the legal limit.

Cowboys practice-squad member Jerry Brown Jr. was killed in the Dec. 7 crash along state Highway 114 in Irving.

Police documents detailing the crash and a timeline of what happened that night are now in the district attorney's office.

According to the documents, Brent was going at a minimum of 110 mph down Highway 114. The report said he may have gone as fast as 134 mph at points.

At least three different surveillance cameras at a nearby Dallas Area Rapid Transit station captured the car, according to the documents. Investigators said the cameras recorded Brent going through a green light at Tom Braniff Drive.

Two 911 calls were made from the car. In one, clicking sounds from the car's flashers are all that can be heard.
