More probation for PSU linebacker Bowman

April 22, 2009 8:19:33 AM PDT
A judge sentenced Penn State's Navorro Bowman to an extra 12 months of probation and to undergo drug testing and counseling after the linebacker admitted to smoking marijanua twice.

Bowman had already been on probation after pleading guilty in May 2008 to disorderly conduct in connection with a campus fight the previous fall.

A probation officer said Bowman admitted to the marijuana usage during a meeting earlier this month, violating terms of his probation, which was initially supposed to end next month.

A judge gave Bowman a stern warning in court Wednesday, warning him that any more violations could lead to jail time.

Bowman had a team-high 106 tackles for Penn State last season. A team spokesman said coaches were in meetings Wednesday morning and could not be immediately reached for comment.
