Wide receiver for the Chiefs charged in Missouri

Dwayne Bowe, a wide receiver for the Chiefs, was taken into police custody in Riverside on Nov. 10 just before midnight after officers allegedly observed the man speeding. He ultimately faces charges for speeding and possession of a controlled substance.

According to authorities, a Riverside K-9 officer conducted a traffic stop on the wide receiver after observing him traveling at 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. When the officer approached the car, he allegedly detected marijuana.

The officer asked Bowe and his two passengers to exit the vehicle. The officer then had his K-9 partner search the vehicle. The dog alerted the officer to a possible controlled substance in the wide receiver's wallet. The officer then allegedly recovered two containers that contained 6.6 grams and 3.8 grams of what authorities believed was marijuana in them. The K-9 also alerted the officer to a black backpack that contained 4.2 grams of what was thought to be marijuana.

Bowe was taken to a nearby police department, where he was booked on the charges. He was released from custody after paying a $750 bond and will be required to return to court on Dec. 18. The report indicated that the Chiefs were aware the incident had occurred, but it is unknown if any action will be taken against Bowe.

While it was not stated if the wide receiver was driving while under the influence of marijuana, if he had been charged with DWI, the consequences could have been potentially severe. An attorney might have been able to provide a strong DWI defense for him by either challenging the evidence that the prosecution has collected or negotiating a plea bargain that would have reduced the severity of the consequences.
