Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da’Quan Bowers was arrested at LaGuardia Airport Monday morning for illegally carrying a gun, NBC New York reports.
NBC New York says Bowers was arrested at the check-in desk after being found with a gun in his carry-on bag.
Bowers, a second-round pick from Clemson in 2011, was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and is set to appear in court Monday night. Bowers appeared in 10 games last season for the Bucs, registering 13 tackles and three sacks.
Who can really blame Bowers in this circumstance? I mean who hasn’t been caught trying to sneak a pistol onto a plane in their carry-on bag? It’s just among the usual carry-on belongings — magazines, iPod, snacks, drinks — and a gun.
Come on, Da’Quan, you’re better than that.
