Oklahoma football chaplain arrested for stealing prescription drugs from a man's home
Friday October 17th, 2014

Kent Bowles, the man who serves as the chaplain for Oklahoma's football team, was arrested Wednesday after allegedly offering a man a test drive before taking prescription pills from his home, according to a report from The Oklahoman.

Hydrocodone and Oxycodone were reportedly among the types of pills Bowles stole. Bowles, 45, told police that he is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athetes and that the test drive would go toward a Ferguson GMC dealership making a donation to the ministry, according to the report.

Bowles volunteered to stay in the home while the resident took the test drive. The resident notified his wife that he was leaving the man alone in the home.

The man’s wife monitored Bowles using a security camera live stream on her phone. She said she noticed Bowles wandering through the house. She notified her husband, who ended the test drive early and returned home.

A representative of the dealership reportedly told police that there was no fundraiser involving test drives.
