It’s always good to have a friend around when you need someone to take a charge for you.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe resolved his possession of marijuana case, pleading guilty to defective equipment and littering, according to the Kansas City Star.

Bowe  was reportedly fined $610 and received no probation.

“Like others charged with speeding and possessing marijuana for the first time, Mr. Bowe pleaded guilty to amended charges,” prosecutor Amy Ashefford said. “Justice requires that similar cases be treated similarly. As a result, it’s important to me that Mr. Bowe be treated no differently, either with a harsher or lesser punishment than any other person in a similar situation, and that is what occurred tonight.”

According to Bowe’s lawyer Kevin E.J. Regan, the case is now closed.

“Dwayne’s case is now closed. The case was firmly and fairly prosecuted. We investigated it thoroughly and found the appropriate motions in this case … there was no admission of guilty to marijuana possession, and our investigation revealed he did not possess marijuana. There was no guilty plea to the marijuana charge, it was dismissed, meaning it won’t be re-filed. Dwayne appreciates the support of his family, friends, fans and teammates. This matter is now behind him, and he’ll have no further comment about this incident. He’s working hard this offseason to pick up hard where he left off in the Indianapolis Colts playoff game.”

Bowe and his friend George A. Thompson, were arrested in November for possessing more than 10 grams of marijuana.  Thompson took responsibility and the charge.
