Cowboys starting safety Damontae Kazee was arrested early Tuesday morning and charged with driving while under the influence, Michael Gehlken of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Kazee was pulled over for a traffic violation in a Dallas suburb a little after 3 a.m. Per Gehlken, a spokesperson for The Colony police said an officer noticed Kazee exhibiting physical signs of alcohol consumption. Kazee admitted to the officer he had been drinking.

Kazee was detained after failing a field sobriety test. He was charged with a Class B misdemeanor for a first offense. He posted $2,500 bond and was released from The Colony Municipal Jail early Tuesday afternoon.

The Cowboys are on their bye week after defeating the Patriots on Sunday. The organization had no comment on Kazee.

The safety signed with Dallas after spending his first four seasons with the Falcons. Former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn is now the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator.

Kazee has started all six games for Dallas this season, recording an interception, three passes defensed, and a forced fumble.

  1. For the most part this team has gotten better with this stuff the last few years but we always got to have a few morons in Dallas I guess

  2. Hey, at least he didn’t send offensive emails. All that can happen with a DWI is that you can kill yourself or someone else. He’ll be back in no time.

  3. Next come the guns, then the domestic violence. It runs in spurts. Grab your popcorn

  4. Of course a DUI is serious but I say let’s cut the guy a break. Are all of you that are nailing him to a cross a calling for him to be cut, free of this type of offense or something similar. It is his first as the article noted. He’s sure to be fined and probably suspended. But calling for his job is harsh. We all make bad decisions and he will have consequences. Let’s get him some help and support fellas! Peace ✌🏼

  5. When will the NFL get tough on these drivers who are under the influence. These miscreants should get a year long suspension so that they can get the counseling they deserve and then get a chance to comeback for one time. After that … permanent ban. Why was he even on the streets at 3am? Some professional.

  6. DUI is more than serious. The very actions he took could have taken one of your relatives’ lives. Let me hear back from you when you have that happen and then seek to mitigate the impact of the offense. Every driver under the influence should be treated with contempt by the public and given extensive treatment. There should be NO TOLERANCE for those who drink and then drive (or use drugs). I know someone who lost a loved one due to actions like this fool.

  7. This guy is not very bright. Never admit to consumption of ANY amount of alcohol. Never submit to a field sobriety test. And most importantly, NEVER drive drunk. Stupid millionaire with the ability to have a personal car on call 24/7, 365.

  8. “We all make bad decisions and he will have consequences”

    Criminal charges usually get you fired in most workplaces, the NFL is one of few employers that actually seem to not care at all.

  9. This is why I love rooting against Dallas each year. You don’t need other teams to beat them, they successfully beat themselves.

  10. If there was an aggressive salary de-escalator clause in players and coaches contracts for DUI, my guess would be a lot less of these stories.
