Cowboys safety Damontae Kazee name-dropped his famous teammates during his DWI arrest in a Dallas suburb last month.
In police footage obtained by TMZ, the 28-year-old can be seen telling an officer that he had “three shots” at a dinner with star quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott.
“Today we was just going out to eat, because it’s rookie night,” Kazee said, adding that the group was “just having fun.”
Kazee was pulled over in the Dallas area on Oct. 19 at around 3 a.m. for a number of traffic violations, police said, including failure to use his turn signal while changing lanes. He said he was on his way home at the time.
After a series of field sobriety tests, Kazee was arrested and booked on a misdemeanor DWI charge. TMZ published his mugshot photos, which show the former Falcons player wearing an orange inmate shirt.
Kazee, who signed with the Cowboys this offseason, addressed the situation days after his arrest, telling reporters, “I apologized to my family, my teammates, my coaches and to the owner, who gave me a job.”
At the time, the Kazee said he’d “deal with” any discipline from the NFL.
“I didn’t hit nobody, I didn’t hurt myself. Just thankful I’m here now,” he said.
The San Diego State alum was a fifth-round pick by Atlanta in the 2017 NFL Draft. He played for the Falcons for four seasons before joining the Cowboys in March — and finished his career in Atlanta with 199 tackles, 10 interceptions and five forced fumbles.
Kazee has started nine games for Dallas this season, recording 27 tackles and one interception.
