Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Quincy Carter got a brand new uniform this morning -- a brand new orange jumpsuit.
Carter was just charged with drunk driving and misdemeanor marijuana possession stemming from a traffic stop in south Texas around 2AM.
Cops say Carter failed to use his turn signal -- and when they pulled him over the former NFL wash-out had bloodshot eyes and was slurring his speech. Carter was arrested and taken to Hidalgo County Jail.
Cops say the 31-year-old's blood alcohol level registered at 0.14 -- almost twice the legal limit in Texas.
Carter has since posted $1,000 bail and was released a few hours ago.
How 'bout 'dat Cowboy!
