Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested on Sunday for speeding and possession of marijuana. The Chiefs had a bye week so his arrest didn’t affect the game. Usually these arrests happen during the offseason and not so much during the season.
It was an incredibly bone-headed move and the team can’t be thrilled. Bowe has a court date on December 18th for the arrest. Now, Bowe could be facing a suspension.
The police department released a statement on Bowe’s arrest, via FOX 4 KC:
A black, 2011 Audi A8 registered a speed of 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. The police officer, in a marked police car, subsequently stopped the car on West Platte Road at Riverside Street.
While questioning the driver the Officer detected a strong odor of marijuana from inside of the vehicle. The officer then requested the driver and two passengers to get out of the vehicle. Once out of the vehicle the Officer explained to the driver, who owned the vehicle, that he was a K-9 Officer and that the dog would alert to an illegal substance. Subsequently, inside of a black bag the officer discovered the wallet of the driver and vehicle owner, Dwayne L. Bowe, and two containers that had 6.6 grams and 3.8 grams respectively of what is believed to be marijuana in them. Bowe was then placed under arrest for the possession of a controlled substance. The K-9 alerted to a black backpack and inside of that was found a container that had 4.2 grams of what is believed to be marijuana in it.
One of the passengers, George A. Thompson, said the backpack belonged to him. Subsequent to his arrest for possession of a controlled substance, Thompson was searched and on his person two hand rolled cigarettes, containing what is believed to be 2.2 grams of marijuana were also found.
