Dallas Cowboys security Damontae Kazee was arrested early Tuesday and charged with DWI, police confirmed to The Athletic.
Kazee was arrested in The Colony, a suburb of Dallas, at 3 a.m. according to The Dallas Morning News, which first reported the arrest. He was charged with a Class B misdemeanor, posted a $2,500 bond and launched on Tuesday afternoon.
Coming from the Falcons, Kazee signed with Dallas in March. He has began each sport for the Cowboys this season.
The Cowboys are on a bye this week. Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy mentioned Monday that he just lately addressed the staff about being cautious through the bye week.
“I told them what the schedule was going to be,” McCarthy said. “Talked about the distractions and what we don’t want. We have an outstanding season, 5-1, where we are. Make sure that everybody is taking care of themselves and spend as much time as they can with family and friends.
“They deserve it. They deserve this break, the length of it. I have a lot of confidence and a lot of trust in those guys.”
