Police arrested a Tampa Bay Buccaneers player who arrived at LaGuardia Airport Monday morning illegally carrying a handgun, according to reports.

Bowers was trying to board a flight to Raleigh, North Carolina, but was instead charged with second-degree criminal possession of a weapon.  He is due in Queens criminal court tonight.

A former All-American player, the 22-year-old Bowers has played professional football for two years.  He was drafted from Clemson University.
