KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- An attorney for Kansas City Chiefs receiver Dwayne Bowe has filed a motion to suppress evidence related to the player's arrest for possessing marijuana.

Bowe is scheduled to appear Wednesday on a misdemeanor drug charge in the Kansas City suburb of Riverside, where he was pulled over Nov. 10 for speeding. During the stop, an officer detected a strong marijuana odor in the car. Bowe was arrested after an officer found a black bag with his wallet, driver's license and two containers of what the officer suspected to be pot.

Bowe told a local radio station he thought he had been racially profiled, but he took that back Friday in a statement to The Kansas City Star and said he was treated with respect during the stop.
