EDINBURG, Texas (AP) - A new arrest warrant has been issued for Quincy Carter.

That's after the former Dallas Cowboys quarterback failed to appear in a Hidalgo County state district court in Edinburg for two hearings on marijuana possession and drunken driving charges.

Carter, 31, was arrested in February in Mission shortly after a deal for him to play for the Rio Grande Valley Dorados of the arenafootball2 league fell apart.

Carter's attorney, Christ Weaver, tells The Monitor of McAllen that Carter may not have known about the court dates because they hadn't spoken in two weeks.

Carter was cut by the Abilene Ruff Riders of the Indoor Football League earlier this month.
