This past November, Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was pulled over in Missouri, allegedly for driving 48 in a 35. Detecting a “strong odor of marijuana”, the K-9 officer searched the vehicle and found what he was looking for.
Speaking with Kansas City’s 810 WHB yesterday, Bowe theorized that he was targeted for reasons other than speeding (via Chiefs Spin):
“I mean everybody, people close around me and my team and the organization know I had nothing to do with that. I was being profiled and it will all come to light in February. It wasn’t a distraction because my teammates know and my family knows. Like I said, I was being watched and being followed. Like I said, that’s how it goes sometimes when you got the millions behind your name.”
Bowe was previously suspended for four games in 2009 for violating the NFL’s PED policy; any discipline for this particular incident would be separately categorized as a substance-abuse violation.
