GRAPEVINE, Texas (AP) - Police say Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Jay Ratliff had a blood-alcohol level twice the legal limit the night he was arrested after a car accident.
Grapevine police on Monday said Ratliff's blood-alcohol level was measured at 0.16 percent. Texas' drunken-driving standard is 0.08 percent.
Ratliff was arrested last week after a late-night accident in Grapevine, about 20 miles northwest of Dallas. Ratliff's pickup truck sideswiped a semitrailer truck. Police say he later failed a field sobriety test.
He is accused of driving while intoxicated.
Ratliff refused a breath test, but police obtained a warrant for a blood sample.
His arrest came weeks after fellow Cowboy Josh Brent was indicted on an intoxicated manslaughter count in the Dec. 8 crash that killed his friend and Cowboys practice squad player Jerry Brown.
