Starting nose tackle Jay Ratliff was arrested and charged with DWI early Tuesday after his black Ford F-150 truck struck an 18-wheeler in Grapevine, Texas, police senior officer Sam Shemwell told NFL.com and NFL Network. Ratliff -- the sole occupant of the vehicle -- was not injured in the crash. He was arrested after officers who responded to the scene determined he was intoxicated. Raliff was arraigned and bonded out of jail Tuesday morning. A breath sample to determine intoxication was refused, according to Shemwell. A search warrant was asked for and received to draw blood, but toxicology results still are pending. Police determined Ratliff was at fault in the crash. Ratliff's arrest comes six weeks after teammate and friend Josh Brent was arrested following an accident that took the life of Cowboys practice-squad linebacker Jerry Brown. Brent was indicted on one count of intoxicated manslaughter and faces a maximum of 20 years behind bars if convicted.Jay Ratliff arrested on drunk-driving charge in Texas - NFL.com
