Bye weeks are often welcomed by teams because they provide a chance for players to heal up the aching body parts they’ve accumulated over the course of the season.
There’s also a little bit of fear about the possibility of players running into trouble without their jobs to occupy them. That’s what appears to have happened to Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe.
Riverside, Missouri police confirmed to FOX 4 in Kansas City that Bowe was arrested shortly before midnight on Sunday on charges of speeding and possession of a controlled substance. Bowe was pulled over for going 48 mph in a 35 mph zone and the police officer that pulled him over smelled marijuana in the car, leading to a search with a police dog that found two containers with 6.6 and 3.8 grams of marijuana in a bag. One of the two passengers in the car was also arrested for possession of marijuana.
Bowe was released on a $750 bond and has a December court date on the charges.
