Police claim they noticed “physical signs that Kazee had been drinking, and Kazee told the officer he had consumed alcohol.”
He was charged with a Class B misdemeanor DWI after failing his field sobriety test, according to the same report.

As I always say, Kazee has every right in the world to be presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. That’s the system we have here and everyone should be thankful for it.
Having said that, he’s a massive idiot if he’s guilty of driving under the influence. There’s no excuse for anyone to hop behind the wheel after drinking.
That’s especially true for someone with NFL money who can afford a driver or an Uber.

When you get behind the wheel after consuming alcohol, you’re not just putting yourself at risk. You’re putting everyone on the road near you at risk.
It’s just not worth it.
The Cowboys got free agent safeties Damontae Kazee and Jayron Kearse for a combined $2.254 million.
The two have a total of 39 tackles, 5 pass breakups, 1 forced fumble and one interception, combining for 700+ snaps.
Malik Hooker, also on a vet minimum, also plays key role.

Hopefully, the authorities get to the bottom of what happened and deal with it appropriately. We simply can’t tolerate people driving under the influence.
