SHARE Report: Jeremiah Ratliff pleads guilty to DWI

Bears defensive tackle Jeremiah Ratliff pled guilty to a Driving While Intoxicated charge from more than two years ago, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Ratliff will serve a one-year probation and was ordered to pay a $750 fine and submit to field sobriety tests during traffic stops, according to the report.

The former Cowboys player presented documents saying he went through a substance abuse evaluation, DWI education course and Mothers Against Drunk Driving victim impact panel, according to the newspaper. He performed 20 hours of community service.

Ratliff was arrested Jan. 22, 2013, on suspicion of DWI after a crash involving a tractor-trailer in Grapevine, Texas. No one was hurt.

Ratliff did not participate in the Bears’ volunteer workout practices the past three days.
