Dallas Cowboys Player, Jay Ratliff, Gets DWI

ESPN Dallas reported that “Dallas Cowboys starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff was arrested and charged with DWI in the early morning hours Tuesday after he crashed his 2011 Ford pickup truck into an 18-wheeler.” Police officials from Grapevine, Texas responded quickly and fled to the location of the accident, 2800 block of East State Highway 114, to conduct an investigation.

During the investigation procedure, Ratliff was apprehended for suspicion of DWI. However, he was let out on Tuesday morning. It was determined that nobody received any injuries. The police investigation report stated that “Ratliff was traveling in the middle lane, slightly ahead of of the semi, before turning into the 18-wheeler’s lane…his truck was then “turned sideways and struck a median protector…and came to a stop.”

Dallas Cowboys officials and Mark Slough, who represents Ratliff, refused to make any comments on Ratliff’s case. However, it was commented that “Ratliff is considered one of the more passionate players on the team.” Although Ratliff underwent a sports hernia surgery during December, he was still kept on the active roster in hopes that he would play in the playoffs. Unfortunately, “any NFL player that is arrested is subject to the NFL conduct policy which could result in a fine or suspension.”
