RIVERSIDE, Mo. (AP) — Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe was arrested outside Kansas City over the weekend on charges of speeding and possessing marijuana, throwing his status for a pivotal AFC West showdown against the Denver Broncos into question.

Bowe was pulled over for going about 48 mph in a 35 mph zone, police in suburban Riverside said Tuesday. Police said an officer smelled “a strong odor of marijuana from inside of the vehicle,” and asked Bowe and two passengers to get out of the car.
