    Default Cowboys' Jay Ratliff arrested on DWI charge

    GRAPEVINE, Texas -- Veteran Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated early Tuesday morning.
    Grapevine police spokesman Sam Shemwell said Ratliff's black Ford F-150 pickup truck went out of control after sideswiping an 18-wheeler in the 2800 block of Highway 114 shortly after midnight.

    Ratliff, 31, was not injured after crashing into a guardrail.
    While no alcohol containers were found inside Ratliff's truck, officers responding to the scene arrested him after observing "clear indications" that he had been drinking.

    Ratliff refused to submit to a Breathalyzer test at the scene of the crash, so he was taken to the police station, where a warrant was obtained to draw blood for a determination of his blood alcohol content.

    Ratliff was released on a $500 bond before noon.

    Jay Ratliff has played for the Cowboys for his entire professional career, since 2005.

    Teammate Josh Brent was charged with intoxication manslaughter in December following a crash in Irving in which teammate Jerry Brown Jr. was killed.

    Cowboys power brokers are all at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama this week. They declined comment on Ratliff's arrest.
