There are so many great things about college football but lately all we have heard about are the negative aspects about the sport. Whether it’s Georgia Bulldogs’ running back Todd Gurley being suspended or the drama surrounding Florida State Seminoles’ quarterback Jameis Winston, there always seems to be something.

Now, a worse story has popped up.

According to Adam Kemp of The Oklahoman, team chaplain Kent Bowles has been arrested on drug and larceny charges.

"Norman police said they were called about 6:45 p.m. Wednesday to a disturbance in the 2000 block of Morning Dew Trail and entered a house after hearing sounds of distress.Inside, they found the resident and Bowles. When officers asked Bowles if he had anything concealed on him, Bowles admitted that he had taken pills from the home, police said. An officer retrieved several types of pills from Bowles’ pockets, including Oxycodone and Hydrocodone."

Bowles has since posted $5,000 bond and has been released.

Bowles has not commented on his situation.
