NFL player Da’Quan Bowers was arrested Monday morning for carrying a weapon in his suitcase at LaGuardia Airport.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end was charged with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon after the 22-year-old told a US Airways ticket agent he was carrying a .40-caliber pistol and a magazine of bullets while checking in his suitcase for his flight to Raleigh, N.C..

Bowers was arraigned Monday night and posted $10,000 bond at Queens Criminal Court.

According to the Daily News, if Bowers is convicted of just one of the charges, he could face a minimum jail sentence of 3 1/2 years.
