Kansas City Chiefs WR, Dwayne Bowe was arrested Sunday and charged with speeding and possession.
The news just broke and now, so did his mug shot, which is floating around Twitter.
I don’t think you need me to say it but this was monumentally stupid behavior by Bowe. The Chiefs have invested in him and have given him a giant contract and the way he rewards them is through subpar play on the field and moronic antics off the field.
Bowe has a court date of December 18th, which is the Wednesday before the Chiefs play the Indianapolis Colts at Arrowhead Stadium.
It will be interesting to see how this all plays out. According to the police report, Bowe’s friend is claiming ownership of the drugs but the problem is that this whole thing went down in Bowe’s car, which makes him responsible. The third person in the car was not charged.
There are two big problems here. Number one, this story is going to be a huge distraction for the team as they try to prepare for the Denver Broncos. Number two, Bowe more than likely will eventually be suspended for an unknown number of games. Despite the fact that Bowe’s on-field performance has been less than stellar this season, don’t think that his being on the field doesn’t matter. Defenses still consider Bowe a threat and they are more often than not having their best corner covering him. Bowe is also an asset in the runnign and screen game as a blocker.
Losing Bowe, particularly if his suspension comes during the playoffs, would be devastating for an already anemic Chiefs offensive attack.
