Chicago Bears Receiver Sam Hurd Arrested On Federal Drug Charges

Looks like more bad news for the Chicago Bears. Receiver Sam Hurd has been arrested on federal drug charges.

The Dallas Morning News reports that the arrest took place in Chicago but relates to an attempt to purchase drugs from a supplier in North Texas, and that a Texas-based office of Immigration and Customs Enforcement is handling the investigation. Hurd played for the Cowboys from 2006 to 2010.

Hurd allegedly had conversations with an undercover agent about receiving up to 10 kilograms of cocaine and a half ton of marijuana per week “for distribution in the Chicago area.”

Hurd was willing to pay $25,000 per kilo of cocaine and $450 per pound for the marijuana. Hurd allegedly handled the high end deals and wanted the transaction to happen on “Mexican cellphones”  because he did’t think the Feds could track those conversations.
