Stacee McWilliams, an eyewitness to the aftermath of the car accident that killed former Dallas Cowboys player Jerry Brown, told the Dallas Morning News that Josh Brent is no hero in her eyes.

Brent, who was accused of driving drunk with Brown in the passenger seat, didn't try to get his friend out of the flipped car until McWilliams begged him to, McWilliams said.

"Josh Brent is not a hero," she said in an interview with the Dallas Morning News. "I keep hearing reports of how he was there to pull his friend from the fire, but he had to be coerced, and pushed, and begged, and pleaded to get his friend out of the fire. And when he pulled him out, he just left him in the street. He didn't tell him, 'Hang in there. Help is on the way.' Nothing. He just left him there."
