OSU WR suspended after felony drug charge
STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma State wide receiver Bo Bowling was suspended from the team Wednesday after he was arrested on felony drug charges.
Bowling was arrested Sunday by Stillwater police and has been charged with possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia, according to court documents.
Court documents indicate the controlled substance was alprozolam, an antidepressant commonly known as Xanax.
Bowling, a senior-to-be from Tonkawa, is free on $2,500 bond and due back in Payne County District Court on March 2 for a preliminary hearing.
"Bo Bowling has been suspended from team activities," Oklahoma State athletic department spokesman Kevin Klintworth said in a statement. "His permanent status with the team will be re-evaluated at a later date, but probably not before the legal process has been completed."
Bowling caught 10 passes for 200 yards and two touchdowns last season as Oklahoma State finished 9-4.
