UPDATE

Lynn Bowden’s agency, Element Sports, has released a statement regarding the search that happened at his grandmother’s house today:

The key point here is, “At the conclusion of the search, Lynn was released, not arrested, and not charged with any crime. In fact, no arrests were made.”

We will continue to update this story if any more details come out today.


WKBN is reporting a developing story regarding the Youngstown, Ohio home of former Kentucky Wildcats star Lynn Bowden’s grandmother.

Wednesday morning, US Marshals and Drug Enforcement Agents (DEA) searched the home while Bowden was present. He was pictured handcuffed on the front porch along with several others.

While it was reported that the home belonged to Bowden, Kyle Tucker of the Athletic reports that Bowden is not one of the homes’ 12 official residents, even though he did grow up there and was present while the Marshals and DEA were on seen.

WKBN later reported that agents and police purchased drugs at the home and that “a number of loaded assault rifles and handguns” were seized. However, Bowden was not the one that agents and police bought the drugs off of.

Bowden’s mother, Melissa Phillips, also chimed in on Twitter, saying her son was “not arrested” and confirmed the home is not his.

Bowden was drafted with the 80th overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft by the Las Vegas Raiders after leading the SEC in rushing last season.
