The Kansas City Chiefs will have an unnecessary distraction to deal with this week as they prepare for an AFC West showdown with the Denver Broncos, as wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested for speeding and possession of a controlled substance.
Here is a portion of the Police Report from Fox4kc:
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.
ESPN’s Ed Werder doesn’t expect the Chiefs to discipline Bowe until the case is resolved. The Chiefs are aware of the situation but aren’t commenting further. as they’re coming off their bye week and set to play its biggest game of the year, matching up against the Broncos and a banged-up Peyton Manning for AFC West lead.
