         === Report: Cowboys' nose tackle Ratliff charged with DWI ===
 
 (Sports  Network) -  Dallas Cowboys  nose  tackle Jay  Ratliff was  reportedly
 arrested and charged with DWI early Tuesday morning in Grapevine, Texas.
 
 According  to  a Dallas Morning  News report,  Ratliff failed a field sobriety
 test  after crashing  his pickup truck into an 18-wheeler. Luckily, no one was
 injured in the accident.
 
 Ratliff's  arrest  comes just  weeks  after  former  teammate Josh  Brent  was
 indicted  on a second-degree felony charge of intoxication manslaughter in the
 death of 25-year-old Jerry Brown Jr., a Cowboys practice squad player.
 
 According  to  the report, Ratliff  was arrested  after crashing his 2011 Ford
 F150  pickup truck into a tractor trailer. Ratliff's truck then bounced into a
 highway barrier before coming to a rest.
 
 After  being brought to a Grapevine jail, Ratliff reportedly refused to submit
 to  a  breathalyzer  test. Police  then  got  a  warrant  to draw  his  blood,
 but  his blood  alcohol level  was  unavailable as  police awaited  toxicology
 results.
 
 He was released after posting $500 bond Tuesday morning.
 
 The  four-time Pro  Bowler missed 10 games  this season for the Cowboys due to
 multiple injuries.
