GRAPEVINE (CBSDFW.COM) – Grapevine Police have released the results of Jay Ratliff’s blood alcohol test, which show that the Dallas Cowboy had a BAC of .16, or twice the legal limit when arrested on suspicion of DWI.

Ratliff was arrested in the early morning hours on Jan. 22 by Grapevine Police after crashing his 2011 Ford F-150 into an 18-wheeler on East State Hwy 114. According to the accident report, Ratliff was trying to pass the truck when he struck it and spun out of control, hitting a median protector.

Police say Ratliff refused to take a breathalyzer or submit to a blood draw but failed several roadside sobriety tests and was charged with Driving while intoxicated.  Officers later obtained a warrant to collect a blood sample.

Ratliff bonded out of jail the next morning and has yet to speak with the media.

His arrest comes less than two months after nose tackle Josh Brent was charged with intoxication manslaughter in a crash that killed Cowboys practice squad player Jerry Brown.
