Da’Quan Bowers Reportedly ArrestedFebruary 18th, 2013
Bucs defensive end Da’Quan Bowers was detained and charged with a handgun violation at LaGuardia Airport this morning, per NBC New York.
Bowers was arrested while checking in for a flight with a loaded gun.
Da’Quan Bowers, a defensive end for the Buccaneers, was arrested at a check-in counter after he was found with a loaded .40 caliber firearm in his carry-on bag, spokesmen for the Port Authority and the Queens District Attorney’s office said. He was about to board a US Airways flight to Raleigh, North Carolina.
The former All-American player was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. A spokesman for the Buccaneers said Bowers is currently declining to comment as the organization investigates.
He’s scheduled to appear in court Monday evening.
Now Joe has dealt with Bowers many times and he’s been gracious with Joe and very kind and cooperative. Joe really believes Bowers is a smart guy.
However, forgetting you had a loaded rod with you walking into an airport — in New York, no less — is just not thinking.
