Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Jay Ratliff's blood alcohol content was 0.16 percent, which is two times the legal limit, when he was arrested on Jan. 22 for driving while intoxicated, according to Grapevine, Texas, police. Ratliff was charged after his pickup truck crashed into a 18-wheeler. No one was injured. Ratliff was arrested at the scene when officers suspected he was intoxicated after refusing to give a breath sample. He was released from jail that morning after posting a $500 bond. The incident came on the heels of the Dec. 8 crash when Cowboys practice-squad player Jerry Brown was killed in a vehicle driven by teammate Josh Brent. The backup nose tackle was charged with intoxication manslaughter after tests showed his blood-alcohol content to be more than twice the legal limit. Brent faces up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
