Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter was arrested last week in Gwinnett County, Georgia, the Gwinnett Daily Post reports.
Carter was arrested on a battery warrant from October 5, when he allegedly punched and choked his girlfriend, who attempted to end their relationship due to his repeated drunkenness.
Pulled over by Duluth, Georgia police for an expired tag last Thursday, Carter was placed under arrest and has been released on a $6,596 bond.
A second-round pick (53rd overall) out of Georgia by the Cowboys in 2001, Carter completed 56.5% of his 960 pass attempts for 6,337 yards with 32 touchdowns and 37 interceptions during a 38-game NFL career with Dallas (2001-03) and the New York Jets (2004) before drug addiction and multiple arrests kept him out of the league.
Carter spent a year in the CFL before bouncing around various arena leagues from 2007-09.
