Well, yet another Cowboys defensive lineman has been arrested for DWI. Luckily, nobody is dead this time.
Nose tackle Jay Ratliff was arrested in Grapevine, Texas Tuesday after wrecking his truck into an eighteen-wheeler, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPN.
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 a 18-wheeler, according to Grapevine, Texas, police senior officer Sam Shemwell.
Ratliff and the driver of the tractor trailer were not injured, according to Shemwell.
Police arrived at the 2800 block of East State Highway 114 at 12:36 a.m. to investigate a crash. Police, according to Shemwell, upon an investigation of the crash, arrested Ratliff on suspicion of driving while intoxicated.
This is an issue that needs to be addressed within the league. One too many NFL players are being arrested for this over and over again. It has already affected the Cowboys, as they lost teammate Jerry Brown stemming from an accident caused by then-drunk driving Josh Brent.
It’s getting out of hand, and unless the league steps in it will unfortunately continue.
