rley denied the motion of Bowling’s attorney, Cheryl Ramsey, to suppress evidence found at Bowling’s residence on Feb. 8 that resulted in all three charges.
Ramsey termed the Feb. 8 search of Bowling’s home a "fishing expedition” when officers acted on information received from an ex-girlfriend of Bowling to obtain evidence against him.
When officers arrived at Bowling’s home, he admitted marijuana had been used there that night, leading police to obtain a search warrant. Corley ruled that police "had sufficient reason” to approach Bowling’s home for investigation.
Bowling remained free on bond Friday and must appear in court May 8 for trial. He has been suspended from football activities pending the result of court proceedings.
