Riverside Police said in a news release, via Fox 4 in Kansas City, that an officer pulled Bowe’s black Audi over after he was clocked on the radar gun traveling 48 mph in a 35-mph zone. The officer asked the driver and two passengers to step out of the car after he smelled marijuana. During a subsequent search, a total of 14.6 grams of weed was found inside a black bag. Bowe was then arrested for possession of a controlled substance.
One of the passengers, George A. Thompson, told the officer the bag belonged to him. He was searched and police discovered two rolled joints on him with 2.2 grams of marijuana in them. Both Thompson and Bowe were arrested and booked, while the third passenger was not charged.
From a personal standpoint, this has been a frustrating season for Bowe. The Chiefs are 9-0, but he has not been a major part of the offense. His best game of the season was a seven-catch, 67-yard performance against the Buffalo Bills before the bye week. Bowe will now likely be looking at a suspension.
