Quincy Carter is in trouble again for drug use.
Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter was arrested Friday on marijuana possession charges at the home of a woman who called police saying Carter had been “throwing things around.” Carter was booked in lieu of $500 bond and remained in the city jail Friday afternoon, Irving police spokesman David Tull said.
Carter was released by the Cowboys in 2004 amid numerous media reports that he failed a drug test. He was placed in the NFL’s substance-abuse program and was later placed in rehab while with the New York Jets.
Tull said a woman called police around 5:30 a.m. and said Carter was being disruptive. Police arrested Carter after finding him in possession of less than two ounces of marijuana, Tull said.
Carter, a second-round draft choice by the Cowboys in 2001, started all 31 games in which he played for Dallas, including 17 in 2004.
It’s sad to see someone throw his life away like this. Personally, I think marijuana use should be legal. But it isn’t. And despite his football career having gone bust, Carter has made a lot of money over the years. Surely, he’s got better things to do than smoke pot and cause trouble?
