Buccaneers defensive end Da’Quan Bowers has been arrested for carrying a gun at an airport.
NBCNewYork.com reports that Bowers was arrested at LaGuardia Airport on Monday morning after police discovered he was illegally carrying a handgun. Bowers had a loaded .40 caliber firearm in his carry-on bag as he was attempting to get on a US Airways flight to Raleigh, North Carolina.
Bowers was charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and is expected to appear in court on Monday evening.
A 2011 second-round draft pick of the Buccaneers, Bowers missed the first six games of the 2012 season with a torn Achilles tendon but returned in time to play in 10 games and record three sacks last season.
The stupidity here is absolutely stunning. I can't wrap my head around what the thought process must have been in deciding it was a good thing to carry a gun in your carry-on bag into an airport.
