More than 40 partiers at Cowboys game jailed for intoxication

Posted Monday, Sep. 21, 2009



ARLINGTON — Some 40 fans who attended Sunday night’s football game at the new Cowboys Stadium will likely be late to work Monday morning.

As of 7 a.m. Monday, 41 people were sobering up in the Arlington jail after they were arrested during and after the 33-31 defeat of the Cowboys at the hands of the New York Giants.

There might have been more people arrested at the game, but the exact number was unclear Monday morning. That’s because some people may have bonded out of jail between game start and 6 a.m. Monday.

Bail for public intoxication is $304, according to the Arlington police online jail log.

All were arrested in the 900 block of East Randol Mill Road.

Two people were arrested for fighting and three people who were suspected of driving while intoxicated near the stadium also remained in jail, according to the online log.

A record-setting crowd of 105,121 attended the Dallas Cowboys’ first home football game of the season.

By halftime, 28 people had been kicked out of the game, said Tiara Ellis Richard, an Arlington Texas spokeswoman.

Zorn Establishes Himself

IRVING, Tex. Among the litmus tests passed down through generations of Redskins fans is the ability of new coaches to travel to hated Dallas and beat the Cowboys at Texas Stadium. For many, the first trip to Irving has been brutal, setting a tone that never changed. The last Redskins coach to win his first game in Dallas was George Allen in ’71. Even Vince Lombardi lost his only game here for Washington. And Joe Gibbs lost his first time here in both his regimes.

Jim Zorn may not be a made man quite yet in this town. Seasons are long, much less entire coaching careers. But he’s moving up the ladder awfully fast after a 26-24 victory over a Dallas team that’s touted as one of the Cowboys’ best and a Super Bowl contender. His offense controlled the ball for 38 minutes 9 seconds, outgained Dallas in yardage, 381-344, and did not commit a turnover. Perhaps most important, his attack had such balance between passing and rushing, while the Cowboys threw 47 times out of desperation, that the Redskins actually dominated this game by more than the final margin.

“I don’t know whether I have a headache from calling plays or watching the clock at the end, wanting it to get down [to 0:00],” said Zorn, who sweated out the last 3:22 after a 29-yard Shaun Suisham field goal gave underdog Washington a 26-17 lead that hushed the huge crowd. “It’s good to see that everybody is responding to this style of leadership. We’re heading in the right direction. What does it mean as a [rookie] NFL coach? I mean, we just beat Dallas in Dallas.”

With that, Zorn just stopped and grinned at the thought. Not bad for a guy who, nine months ago when he was introduced as coach, thought the team’s colors were “maroon and black.”

Can we officially and forever forgive that one now? This win stamped Zorn as part of burgundy-and-gold lore.
