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 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.
The senior-to-be from Tonkawa pleaded not guilty in Payne County District Court on Tuesday. He is free on $2,500 bond and due back in court 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.
The team also announced receiver Damian Davis had been kicked off the team and receiver Artrell Woods decided to transfer.
Davis was second among Oklahoma State’s receivers last season with 19 catches for 414 yards and two touchdowns. Woods, who had been recovering after injuring his back in a weightlifting accident that nearly left him paralyzed, made one catch for 7 yards last season.
