Dwayne Bowe arrested for speeding and possession of marijuana

Dwayne Bowe Groupie TalkKansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana on Sunday after he was pulled over for speeding.

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.

NFL Players Having Hotel Sex Parties?

We all know that there are plenty of things that go on with NFL players and NFL teams behind the scenes that remain “in-house.”  That’s the nature of any business, and I’m sure the league, players, and coaches prefer it to stay that way.  When it doesn’t you wind up with scandals like the Vikings sex boat fiasco. Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, did not shy away from giving the public a glimpse into the lives of NFL stars and sharing some of the fun activities they like to participate in while on the road.  Here’s what Dwayne Bowe shared with ESPN The Magazine for their “Postcards From The Edge” feature — which consists of anecdotes from professional athletes — courtesy of Pro Football Talk.

My rookie year, we were playing in San Diego. You hear stories about groupies hanging out in hotel lobbies, but some of my teammates had it set up so there was a girl in every room. The older guys get on MySpace and Facebook a week before we go to a city; when a pretty one writes back, they arrange to fly her in three or four days in advance. They call it importing. Younger guys don’t have the money to do it.

Anyway, these girls had the whole top floor. They know everything about us — first and last names, sisters and brothers, salary. This one girl was talking to me like she’d known me for years. ‘Hey, D-Bowe, how’s Grandma?’ I’m like, ‘How do you know my grandma?’ She knew that I talk about her every time I’m interviewed for a story. I told her I had a girlfriend, but she didn’t care. She was wearing my jersey, sitting in my lap, making it look like we knew each other.  Then she took a picture and put it on Facebook. That almost got me in trouble.”
