Cowboys S Damontae Kazee Arrested Tuesday Morning

Damontae Kazee was arrested Tuesday morning near Dallas and was charged with driving while under the influence, reports Michael Gehlken of the Dallas News.

Kazee was pulled over shortly before 3:00 a.m. in a suburb of Dallas. The 28-year-old admitted to drinking and failed a field sobriety test. He posted bond and was released from jail this afternoon.

A Cowboys spokesperson declined comment, per Gehlken. The arrest would fall under the NFL’s Personal Conduct Policy, which could lead to punishment for the veteran safety. The Cowboys are off this week, so we might not get an immediate resolution.

The former fifth-round pick spent the first four seasons of his career with the Falcons, starting 34 games. He was limited to only four games in 2020 before suffering an Achilles injury, and he had to settle for a one-year deal with Dallas this past offseason. The move reunited him with his former head coach (and current defensive coordinator) Dan Quinn, and Kazee has clearly earned the trust of his coaching staff. He’s started all six games this season, collecting 17 tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble.
