Why was Damonte Kazee arrested? Dallas Cowboys safety taken into custody



The safety of cowboy Damonte Kazee was kicked out by the team after Colony police arrested him. Kazee was charged by police with drunk driving and was arrested Tuesday.

Given that Dallas got off to a great start to a season in which they hold a 5-1 record and seemingly hold NFC East well, the only way for Dallas to fall off the rails is if they do it themselves. Which they have now.

Starting the farewell week fresh after a painstaking win over the New England Patriots thanks to Ceedee Lamb’s overtime run, it looked like it was going to be a quiet farewell week for Mike McCarthy and his team. That is not the case now.

What did Damonte Kazee do?

Police said 28-year-old Kazee was stopped Tuesday morning at 3 a.m. along State Highway 121. Police then said a police officer suspected Cowboy’s safety was drunk, and Kazee then told police he was actually drinking, and then he failed to give a sobriety test.

At noon on Tuesday, Kazee was released from prison in the colony, and his DWI was classified as a Class B offense.

After playing with the Atlanta Falcons for four years, the Kazee were signed by the Dallas Cowboys, and with former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, the new Cowboys defensive coordinator, it felt like a good fit.

Kazee started every game this season with certainty for Dallas, as the defense showed significant progress after last year’s historically poor defense in which teams would run and throw the Cowboys ’defense at will.

The Cowboys said goodbye after starting the season 5-1, and the only defeat was the Buccaneers ’last second goal of the first week. Since then, Dallas has beaten the LA Chargers, Eagles, Panthers, Giants and eventually overtime wins over the Patriots.

While it remains to be seen what the outcome will be for Kazee, the Dallas Cowboys are known for having a few off-field problems when their season seems to be going as well as it does now.

While that may not be the reason the Cowboys season goes to the sidelines, adding injury to Daku Prescott, there are a few signs of trouble for a team that has played consistently so far, winning football and NFL take note.
