DALLAS - Dallas Cowboys Cornerback Nolan Carroll was arrested by Dallas police for driving while intoxicated early Monday morning.
Dallas police said an officer pulled Carroll over for driving the wrong way on McKinney Avenue after leaving Sidebar in Uptown.
A "welcome to Dallas party" was being thrown for Carroll, according to social media posts. Sidebar is about a half-mile from Carroll's arrest location.
According to the Dallas County Sheriff's Department, Carroll posted bond at 2:45 p.m. Monday and was released.
Carroll spent his last three seasons with the Cowboys NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles before signing with Dallas this offseason. He played four years in Miami from 2010-2013.
The seven-year NFL veteran has seven career interceptions, including two last year with the Eagles. Carroll started 11 games last year, missing the final five due to a broken ankle.
