Officer Joseph Robert Brentwood, known better in Arnette as Joe Bob (d. 22 June, 1990) was a highway patrolman for East Texas. The cousin of William Hapscomb, he was responsible for the spread of Captain Trips from Arnette throughout East Texas and neighbouring states.

Brentwood was among the first to react positively for even the shortest time to the vaccination, before his fever returned, delirium worsened and he broke his restraints, spending his last hour wheeling around the room screaming, shaking and sending mucus flying across the room.
