Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe has issued a brief apology after he was arrested on a marijuana possession charge.
“I apologize to the Hunt Family, Coach Reid, my teammates and Chiefs fans for the distraction I have caused the team this week,” Bowe said in a statement. “Due to the nature of the pending matter, I am unable to make any further comment on the situation.”
Bowe’s attorney says Bowe is innocent.
“My investigation reveals that Dwayne Bowe is unequivocally, 100% innocent in this matter,” attorney Kevin E. J. Regan told KMBC. “We look forward to clearing his good name at our earliest opportunity.”
It’s not clear why Bowe thinks he has anything to apologize for if he’s innocent, but the Chiefs are satisfied enough with Bowe that he will start on Sunday night against the Broncos.
