Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter was charged with driving while intoxicated in Texas following a traffic stop in Hidalgo County. Texas Department of Public Safety officers say they stopped Carter around 2:00 am early Friday morning on US Expressway 83. His blood alcohol content was reportedly .14%, nearly twice the legal limit for intoxication in Texas. Carter was charged on the scene with Texas DWI and taken to the Mission City Jail. He reportedly will be transferred to the Hidalgo County Jail for arraignment.
Carter was the starting quarterback for the NFL Dallas Cowboys in 2003 but was released during training camp before the 2004 season after allegations of drug use. He briefly played for the New York Jets before turning to arena football. Carter played for the Kansas City Brigade and signed with the Rio Grande Dorados for the 2009 season, although league officials recently ruled he could not play due to league eligibility issues.
