Riverside, Mo. - Kansas City Chiefs and former LSU wide receiver Dwayne Bowe has been arrested outside Kansas City for speeding and possessing marijuana.
Police in suburban Riverside say Bowe was pulled over for speeding late Sunday and that an officer smelled marijuana in the car. The officer found a bag holding Bowe's wallet and two small containers of what the officer suspected was marijuana.
Police say Bowe was cited for speeding and possession of a controlled substance. He posted $750 bond and is scheduled to appear in Riverside court on Dec. 18.
Chiefs spokesman Ted Crews says the team is aware of the situation, is gathering information and has no further comment.
The Chiefs are off Tuesday before resuming preparations for a pivotal AFC West showdown at Denver on Sunday night.
Bowe played at LSU from 2003 to 2006 and was drafted 23rd overall by Kansas City in the 2007 NFL Draft. His 26 career touchdowns are the most in school history and is 6th in career receptions and yards.
