Some people never learn, and it’s sad when tragedy is all around you and you still never learn. ESPN Dallas is reporting that Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff has been arrested and charged with DWI after crashing his pickup into an 18 wheeler.
Ratliff was arrested around 12:40 a.m. early Tuesday morning after crashing his 2011 ford pickup truck into an 18 wheeler. Neither driver was injured.
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.
Ratliff was bonded out of a Grapevine jail on Tuesday morning.
Cowboys brass was in Mobile, Alabama for the Senior Bowl and declined to comment.
Considering what happened with Josh Brent and Jerry Brown, this is extremely sad. It’s also important to note that the Cowboys employ a car service that goes above and beyond what most teams offer.
