Riverside police confirmed to FOX 4 Tuesday morning that an officer arrested Chiefs’ wide receiver Dwayne Bowe on Sunday for speeding and possession of marijuana.
Inside a black bag the officer discovered the wallet of the driver and vehicle owner, Bowe, and two containers that had 6.6 grams and 3.8 grams respectively of what is believed to be marijuana in them. A black backpack was also found with a container that had 4.2 grams of what is believed to be marijuana in it. However, one of the passengers, George A. Thompson, said the backpack belonged to him. Bowe's court date is Dec. 18. Bowe is coming off one of his better games in Week 9 where he had seven catches for 67 yards on 12 targets. All were season highs. However he's not been a very productive fantasy player despite the Chiefs being 9-0. Bowe likely wont miss any time this year as Andy Reid and the Chiefs let this drag out in the courts. But remember, Bowe was suspended four games in 2009 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy.
