ABILENE, Texas (AP) -- Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter is free on bond after his arrest in Abilene.

Abilene police say Carter was arrested Sunday night on a probation violation warrant. The violation arose from a February arrest in South Texas for alleged drunken driving.

Carter now plays for the 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. The former Georgia star played in the Arena League before a brief tryout last year with the Miami Dolphins.
