According to the Gwinnett Daily Post in Georgia, former NFL quarterback Quincy Carter was arrested last week in Gwinnett County on a battery warrant from earlier this month.
Police reportedly responded to the home of Carter’s girlfriend at 1:00 a.m. on October 5 when the woman attempted to break up with Carter because she’d “had enough of him being drunk all the time.” Things then allegedly turned violent.
“He put both of his hands around her neck and started choking her,” Gwinnett County police said. “He also punched her in the mouth and in the face several times.”
Carter was pulled over on October 15 for an expired tag. He also did not have a valid driver’s licence and was taken into custody.
“His driver’s license expired in 2004,” wrote the arresting officer.
