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.

But with a big game this week vs the Broncos on Sunday Night Football, the team appears to be waiting to discipline him until after their AFC West showdown game, as he’ll reportedly suit-up and play this week, according to a source that ESPN has cited.

The team may be waiting to let the legal process play out, but this a portion of the Police Report from his arrest makes it sound pretty likely Bowe was guilty of some wrongdoing.

Per Fox4kc:

"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."

Despite a disappointing year, the Chiefs clearly don’t want to bench Bowe after they signed him a five-year, $56 million contract in the offseason. He is second on the team with 33 receptions and third with 369 receiving yards. Still, it he can help them win vs Denver, that’s all that matters to them at the moment.
