Ex-UGA QB Carter arrested

  • Follow Latest News

ABILENE, Texas – Former University of Georgia and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter is free on bond after his arrest in Abilene.

Abilene police Sgt. Keith Shackleford said the former Georgia Bulldog was arrested Sunday night on a probation violation warrant from Dallas County. The violation arose from a February arrest in South Texas for alleged drunken driving.

Carter now quarterbacks the 3-3 Abilene Ruff Riders of the Indoor Football League. In 2003, he led the Cowboys to a 10-6 season and the playoffs in their first season under coach Bill Parcells.

Dallas released Carter in training camp before the 2004 season. He started briefly for the New York Jets before poor play and drug-related arrests ended his NFL career. He played in the Arena League before a brief tryout last year with the Miami Dolphins.

Embarrassment to the UGA

Embarrassment to the UGA nation. Between his illigit children- I think I heard 20 or so- and all his drug incidents. I was amazed he even got a pro contract! So long and return your Bulldog jersey!

Exactly what part of my comment was in violation? Talking bad about Moreno? Or what how I bet he'll do harm to strippers like PacMan Jones?
