CHARLOTTE, N.C. The trial date for former Carolina Panther Dwayne Jarrett has been delayed.

Jarrett was released from the Panthers in October after he was arrested on DWI charges for the second time in less than three years.

His trial date was originally scheduled for Feb. 3 but has been moved to April 11.

A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer arrested Jarrett on Oct. 5 at 1:52 a.m. on Interstate 77 at Nations Ford Road. He was taken to the Mecklenburg County Jail for processing and later released on $2,000 bond.

On March 11, 2008, Jarrett was arrested on March 11, 2008 by Mint Hill police for DWI. In that case, Mint Hill police said an officer saw Jarrett cross the center line and run a red light.

He pleaded guilty on June 23, 2008, and was sentenced to 24 hours' community service. He also paid $420 in court costs and surrendered his driver's license for an unspecified amount of time.
