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.
How Fing dumb can you be? I mean, NFL players do dumb ****, but carrying a loaded gun at an airport? You might as well walk into a bank with a ski mask and combat vest.
Two counts of second degree criminal possession. 3.5 years to 15 max. Plaxico Burress charges.
