Bowe Admits To Minor Traffic Offenses, Marijuana Charge Dropped from KCTV5

"There was no admission of guilt to marijuana possession, and our investigation revealed he did not possess marijuana," said Kevin Regan, Bowe's attorney. "It was dismissed, meaning it won't be refiled."

Dwayne Bowe's Case Settles On Amended Charges from Chiefs Spin

Bowe pleaded guilty to lesser charges of defective equipment and littering, Riverside City prosecutor Amy Ashelford announced in the courtroom.

"Justice requires that similar cases be treated similarly," Ashelford said of Bowe's first offense.

Though there is plenty of room for debate on the specific decisions the Chiefs are making, I like their general philosophy of paying their playmakers.

"Her greatest assets as a softball player are her strength and quickness. She really fields her position well and makes great plays in the circle. She is strong enough to hit the long ball and is rarely overmatched at the plate. I don't know which sport is her best at this time, but I believe she has a bright future at CHS either way. We're just glad to have her."
