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.
