Kansas City (AFP) – Kansas City Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe, one of the top pass catchers for the NFL’s lone remaining unbeaten team, has been arrested for speeding and possession of marijuana.

Police in suburban Riverside, Missouri, said Bowe was pulled over for speeding just before midnight Sunday and a strong odor of marijuana was detected from his vehicle.

A drug-detecting dog found containers with 6.6 grams and 3.8 grams of marijuana in a black bag that also contained Bowe’s wallet. Another 4.2 grams of marijuana were found in a bag that belonged to a passenger, George Thompson, who like Bowe was arrested.

A third passenger in the vehicle was not arrested and posted bond for Bowe and Thompson, who face a December 18 court date on the matter.

Bowe has made 33 receptions for 369 yards and two touchdowns this season for the Chiefs (9-0), who visit the AFC West division rival Denver Broncos (8-1) in a major NFL showdown on Sunday.

Sean Parnell, the Trump-anointed candidate for Senate in Pennsylvania, dropped out of the race a week ago after a custody hearing that featured lurid details of his relationship with his ex-wife. Laurie Snell alleged that Parnell had struck her, choked her, left her by the side of the road and hit one of their sons hard enough to leave a welt on the boy's back. Parnell countered that she had invented all of it.

Custody battles are infamous for exaggerated accusations and heated denials, and it's difficult for outsiders to know whom to believe and how much. But Parnell's comments off the witness stand didn't burnish his credibility. Appearing on Fox Nation, for example, Parnell opined, "I feel like the whole 'happy wife, happy life' nonsense has done nothing but raise one generation of woman tyrants after the next." He wasn't finished. "Now there's an entire generation of men that don't want to put up with the BS of a high-maintenance, narcissistic woman." Well. Someone seems to be dealing with anger issues. The would-be — er, rather, won't-be — senator concluded with a short sermon on biology: "From an evolutionary standpoint, it used to be, you know, women were attracted to your strength because you could defend them from dinosaurs." Where does the GOP find these geniuses?
