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.
