Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Jay Ratliff crashed his 2011 Ford truck into an 18-wheel tractor trailer. He was charged with DWI and bonded out of a jail within a few hours after the arrest, according to Grapevine, Texas police. Police arrived at East State Highway 114 at approximately 12:36 a.m. Tuesday morning to investigate a crash. Upon an investigation of the crash, officers arrested Ratliff on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. According to a crash report, Ratliff was traveling in the middle lane, slightly ahead of of the semi, before moving into the right lane and colliding with the 18-wheeler. Ratliff’s truck was then “turned sideways and struck a median protector … and came to a stop,” the report says. Designated driver. That’s all I have to say.
