QUINCY CARTER ARREST GETS ATTENTION IN DALLAS

Quincy Carter was arrested over the weekend for the second time this year on a warrant for violating his probation.
The arrest was mentioned on the Dallas Morning News website and was covered by some local media.
He immediately bonded out and was probably hoping that it wouldn't gain any attention.
And it might not have if Carter wasn't famous for getting booted off the Cowboys roster during training camp for an off-field incident involving illegal drugs a year after leading the team to a 10-6 record and a playoff berth.
He seemed a bit annoyed with Bryan Keating, the KTXS Sports Director, for covering the story.
When you're as notorious as Quincy Carter is for getting into trouble off the field, you have to understand that just because you're in Abilene doesn't mean the local media will ignore newsworthy stories.
I'm all for turning things around, and I sincerely hope Quincy does great with the Ruff Riders. It seems that he's at least trying, which is more than I can say for some other professional athletes who've fallen from the lime light.
I'll give Mr. Carter alot of credit for working hard and doing what he can to make the most of his talents and situation...but the Abilene media will respond to off-field issues...just like anywhere else.
