The Dallas Cowboys are riding high after their dramatic overtime victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday, improving their record to 5-1 as they enter their bye week. However, this will certainly put a damper on things.
According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, starting safety Damontae Kazee has been arrested earlier today for DWI:
Kazee, who is in his first season with the Cowboys after signing as a free-agent, was pulled over at about 3:00 AM Tuesday morning in the suburb next to Frisco, the location of team headquarters about 30 miles north of Dallas. He was booked on a Class B bond misdemeanor, and released after posting $2,500 bond.
Kazee did not take heed of the words of head coach Mike McCarthy, who told his team on Monday to make smart decisions during their time off.
"Talked about the distractions and what we don't want," McCarthy said. "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."
The Cowboys have yet to comment.
