Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter was arrested in Corpus Christi, Texas on Wednesday.
According to KGBT-TV he was arrested for two outstanding warrants in Hidalgo County, Texas. They were for failure to appear in court on charges of possession of marijuana and driving while intoxicated.
Carter is best known for his 2003 season with the Dallas Cowboys. He led them to a 10-6 record and a wild card loss against the Carolina Panthers. That was the Cowboys’ first playoff appearance since 1999. During that season, Carter threw 17 touchdown passes and 21 interceptions.
He started a combined 15 games for the Cowboys in 2001 and 2002 and his professional career ended after seven games with the New York Jets during the 2004 season.
Since then he has played on various amateur teams, most recently for a team in Corpus Christi last year.
Carter was originally detained at Nueces County jail before he was extradited to Hidalgo County today.
