Sooners Football Chaplain Arrested on Larceny, Drug Complaints

The chaplain for the University of Oklahoma football team was arrested on Wednesday after he allegedly lured a man from his house by offering a bogus vehicle test drive and then stealing prescription medications while the man was gone.

Kent Bowles, 45, of Norman, who also serves as regional representative for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, a national sports ministry, was arrested on complaints of possession of a controlled dangerous substance, larceny, concealment of stolen property and obtaining cash or merchandise by bogus check or false pretenses.

Norman police 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.

The officer retrieved several types of pills from Bowles’ pockets, including Oxycodone and Hydrocodone. (More at The Oklahoman)
