Roy Williams of the Dallas Cowboys Sues Ex-Girlfriend Over Engagement Ring

Dallas Cowboys receiver Roy Williams has filed a lawsuit after a mail-in marriage proposal was rejected in February, saying he wants the ring back.

Williams' suit is seeking the return of a $76,600 engagement ring he sent with his proposal to former beauty pageant winner Brooke Daniels, the Odessa American reported Wednesday.

When Daniels declined the proposal, she did not return the ring, claiming six weeks later she had lost it, the newspaper said.

Williams reported the loss to his insurance company, which investigated and found that Daniels' father, Michael Daniels, was in possession of the ring.

Michael Daniels is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit.

Michael Daniels told the Odessa American that although he has documentation that Williams initially told his daughter to keep the ring, he would return it to avoid a lawsuit.

Williams and Brooke Daniels lived together for about a year, Michael Daniels said.

"I want to wash my hands of it," Michael Daniels said. "It's just a hassle. I'll take care of my daughter. I don't need him."
