Report: Bucs' Da'Quan Bowers arrested

By Pat Yasinskas

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da'Quan Bowers reportedly was arrested at New York’s LaGuardia Airport on Monday morning for allegedly carrying an illegal handgun.

Bowers reportedly was carrying a loaded .40 caliber firearm in his carry-on bag as he was on his way to board a flight to Raleigh, N.C. He has been charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon. The Bucs have said they're aware of the situation and are gathering information. Bowers is scheduled to appear in court Monday night.

We’ll wait for the legal system to play out on this one. But it should be noted that coach Greg Schiano hasn’t shown a lot of tolerance for players that get into trouble off the field.
