On the heels of the recent tragedy involving a Dallas Cowboys player killed in a drunk driving accident, the Cowboys face another player charged with allegedly driving a vehicle under the influence of alcohol.
Nose tackle Jay Ratliff crashed his 2011 Ford F-150 into an 18-wheeler early Tuesday morning in Grapevine, TX. but sustained no injuries. He was reported to have failed a field sobriety test at the scene and then refused to take a Breathalyzer test at the jail according to DallasNews.com.
On December 8th, Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent was involved in a drunk driving crash that killed fellow teammate Jerry Brown Jr. Brent was later indicted for second-degree felony charge of intoxication manslaughter.
