Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested on Sunday for possession of marijuana and was ticketed for speeding. When officers stopped Bowe, they smelled marijuana coming from the vehicle. The officer explained that he had a drug sniffing dog with him and Bowe admitted to smoking. Bowe also reportedly asked the officer who stopped him whether the nearby Sonic was still open.
After the officer stopped Bowe, the wide receiver asked the officer whether the nearby Sonic was open then.
“(The officer) detected an odor of marijuana coming out of the vehicle,” said Riverside Police Department Major Chris Skinrood.
Once Bowe stepped out of his vehicle, the officer explained to Bowe that he had a drug dog with him and that the canine would alert to an illegal substance.
“Bowe stated that they had smoked a little while waiting at the airport,” according to a police report.
The officer discovered a black bag with two containers that had 6.6 grams and 3.8 grams respectively of what is believed to be marijuana in them. Bowe was placed under arrest for the possession of a controlled substance.
The dog alerted to a black backpack. Inside it, a container was found to have 4.2 grams of what was believed to be marijuana in it.
Bowe has a court date on December 18th and was released on bond. The Chiefs have no comment but ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that Bowe will start on Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
