Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe’s court hearing postponed until Jan. 22

A municipal court hearing for Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who is accused of speeding and possessing marijuana, has been postponed until Jan. 22, according to authorities. Bowe was initially due in court Wednesday.

Riverside police arrested Bowe shortly before midnight Nov. 10 for allegedly speeding and possessing more than 10 grams of marijuana. In a news release last month, Bowe’s attorney, Kevin E.J. Regan, said his client was “unequivocally, 100 percent innocent.”

A police officer stopped Bowe’s 2011 Audi A8, contending it was traveling 48 mph in a 35-mph zone at West Platte Road and Northwest Business Park. Bowe told the officer that he did not have his driver’s license, but he gave the officer an expired insurance card. Two passengers were in the vehicle.

The officer detected what he suspected was a strong marijuana odor coming from inside the vehicle, police said. He later found two containers of what the officer suspected to be marijuana, police said.

Bowe stated that “they had smoked a little” marijuana while waiting at the airport, according to the police report.
