Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe, who was arrested in November for marijuana possession, pleaded guilty Wednesday in Riverside (Mo.) Municipal Court to lesser charges of littering and defective equipment.

In return for his guilty plea to the littering and defective equipment charges, the marijuana charge was dismissed. Bowe paid $610 in fines and court costs.

According to Riverside police, Bowe was pulled over on Nov. 10 for doing 48 mph in a 35 mph zone. The officer detected the strong odor of marijuana coming from the car. After a subsequent search by a police K-9 dog, marijuana was found in Bowe's car.

Bowe's attorney filed a motion last week that evidence from the traffic stop should be suppressed.
