Authorities in Riverside, Missouri say they stopped Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe for speeding Sunday, but they booked him after they found marijuana in his car.
Bowe was stopped just before midnight Nov. 10 at West Platte Road and Riverside Street for speeding. Officers said Bowe’s Audi A8 registered a speed of 48 mph in a 35 mph zone.
The traffic officer says he detected a strong odor of marijuana from inside of the vehicle.
A police dog alerted to an illegal substance. The officer found a black bag and inside it were Bowe’s wallet and two containers containing more than ten grams of marijuana.
A passenger in the vehicle was also cited after the canine alerted to a backpack containing another 4.2 grams and the officer found two marijuana cigarettes in the man’s pocket.
