No TABC Penalties Expected in Cowboys Stadium Arrest

New venue's general manager arrested on suspicion of DWI hours after concert

The Dallas Cowboys aren't expected to face any penalties from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission in connection with the DWI arrest of the general manager of the new Cowboys Stadium hours after the first event there.

Jack Hill was arrested for suspicion of driving while intoxicated early June 7 after a crash near the stadium.

TABC Capt. Charlie Cloud said in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that the state has determined that Hill works for the Cowboys' development company, not the company that holds the liquor sales permit. Legends Hospitality LLC holds the liquor permit for the stadium.

The agency had said last week that the Cowboys could have faced fines or a suspension of their liquor sales permit if an employee became intoxicated at the venue during the event.

Meanwhile, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Hill would continue as general manager, The Dallas Morning News reported.
