Ball rolling down a bowling alley and you'll find it moves slightly slower with time Does this violate Newton's law of inertia?

No it does not violate the law of inertia. This is because while a Bowling Alley is very smooth, it is not exactly frictionless, there is still some friction that acts on the ball, hence slowing it down. Newton said that a body will remain in its state or rest or of motion in a straight line provided there is NO other force acting on the body, but here, we do have a frictional force that acts on it.
