Grapevine police say 31-year-old Jay Ratliff had a blood alcohol limit of 0.16 the night he crashed his car on Highway 114.
The Dallas Cowboys nose tackle wasn't hurt in the Jan. 22 accident in which his pickup truck crashed into an 18-wheeler. The semi truck driver was not hurt either.
According to police records, Ratliff refused a breathalyzer test at the scene, and was escorted to police headquarters for a mandatory blood test.
Ratliff was charged with DWI, then bonded out of jail a short time later.
Ratliff is the second Cowboys player in the last two months charged in an accident involving alcohol. Josh Brent was driving with teammate Jerry Brown when Brent crashed his car, killing Brown.
Brent also had a BAC more than twice the legal amount, Irving police said.
