What was Da’Quan Bowers Thinking by Bringing a Gun in an Airport?
The stupidity of certain professional athletes never ceases to amaze me. Former Clemson standout and current Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Da’Quan Bowers was arrested on Monday morning for having a loaded .40-caliber gun in his carry-on bag at LaGuardia Airport in New York. Yes, you read that right.
NFL players are at airports at least twice as often as regular folks are at the grocery store, so you would think Bowers would know better. Even for someone who’s never flown before, you would think they would have enough sense not to have a gun–a loaded one at that–in their bag trying to get through airport security.
It’s like Bowers woke up on Monday morning and forgot how to be a civilized human. It’s one thing if you forget to leave your pocket knife at home and have to give it over to airport security, but a loaded gun? And not only a loaded one, but a gun Bowers was illegally carrying.
Again, the stupidity of certain professional athletes is beyond mind-boggling. Bowers faces a minimum of three and a half years in prison from charges of two counts of criminal possession of a weapon on the second degree. Well, he’ll have plenty of time to read up on airport security while he’s away and the Buccaneers’ pass rush won’t be getting any better in the meantime.
