Bears WR Sam Hurd was arrested Wednesday night in Chicago on federal drug charges.According to authorities, Hurd attempted to purchase drugs from a supplier in North Texas. Court documents say he tried to possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of mixture or substance containing cocaine. Hurd spent the first four years of his career with the Cowboys and is from San Antonio. In 12 games this season, he has eight catches for 109 yards. Dec 15 - 11:17 AMSource: Dallas Morning News

According to a report from 670 The Score in Chicago, Bears WR Sam Hurd supplied drugs to NFL players numbering in the "double digits."Football was apparently a side job for Hurd, who was one of the top drug dealers in Chicago. His operation makes Nate Newton's 213 pounds of marijuana look small-time. Doing roughly $2 million worth of business every month, Hurd was looking to buy "5 to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week for distribution in the Chicago area." We have to assume extended prison is on the horizon, and Hurd's football career is over. Dec 15 - 4:46 PMSource: CBS Chicago

He was dealing here in Dallas apparently by the reports and we all know one of our favorite morons lives in Dallas so hopefully he's not in Hurd's Little black book.

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.

Questioned by feds a day before signing with Bears, Hurd allegedly kept trying to buy cocaine


Source:   PFT
 Posted by Mike Florio on December 15, 2011, 8:41 PM EST
 

I’ve had a chance to fully digest the five-page criminal complaint filed today against Bears receiver Sam Hurd.  The document reveals that Hurd submitted to a consensual interview with federal authorities in July 2011 — but Hurd allegedly kept on buying and selling cocaine and marijuana, in large amounts.
 
On July 27, a person known only as T.L. allegedly was attempting to purchase four kilograms of cocaine on behalf of Hurd.  T.L. wanted to buy the cocaine at an early hour, because Hurd would be taking it to a “northern destination.”
 
Coincidentally — or otherwise — Hurd signed with the Bears on July 29.  Training camp opened in Illinois on July 30.
 
After a confidential informant arranged to sell the cocaine to T.L., but before the transaction was completed, the authorities arranged a routine traffic stop, at which time $88,000 was seized.  T.L. told authorities that the car and the money belonged to Hurd.
 
On July 28, one day before the Bears gave Hurd a $1.35 million signing bonus as part of a three-year contract, Hurd engaged in a consensual interview with federal authorities, in an effort to recover his $88,000.  Hurd said he had conducted bank withdrawals and wire transfers, and that T.L. had the car containing the money because T.L. was performing maintenance and detailing on the vehicle.
 
Hurd provided federal authorities with a bank statement reflecting the withdrawals.  The statement and the amounts allegedly did not match.
 
At that point, a normal person would have been scared straight.  (Then again, a normal person would never have been trying to buy four kilograms of cocaine.)  Roughly two weeks later, however, T.L. negotiated with the same informant the purchase of five kilograms of cocaine on behalf of Hurd.  The discussions apparently continued in early September, but the transaction apparently was not consummated at the time.
 
Then, in early December, T.L. told the informant that Hurd wanted to meet personally with the informant to discuss further business.  Conversations between T.L. and the informant culminated in Wednesday’s meeting at Morton’s Steakhouse in Rosemont.  At the meeting, Hurd told the informant and an undercover office that Hurd wanted to buy five to ten kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week.  The undercover agent eventually gave Hurd a kilogram of cocaine.  Hurd left the restaurant with the cocaine, and he was arrested in his car.
 
The criminal complaint raises significant questions regarding the three-month lag in communications between September and December between T.L. and the informant.  It seems odd that Hurd would have so quickly found someone in Chicago who could supply four kilograms of cocaine per week, while struggling to finalize a single transaction with the informant in Dallas.  It could be that Hurd was lying about the current breadth of his operations, in the hopes of securing the trust and respect of the people with whom he was still dealing in Texas.
 
Given the clumsy manner in which Hurd handled the $88,000 that was seized only a day or so before he received $1.35 million from the Bears, common sense suggests that, if he were buying four kilograms of cocaine per week from someone in Chicago, it will be easy to collect enough evidence to prove that Hurd was buying and selling that amount of drugs.
 
Time will tell whether Hurd was indeed trafficking that much cocaine per week.  For now, though, there’s a chance that Hurd has been operating less like Heisenberg and more like Jesse Pinkman. 
 
Though it won’t allow Hurd to avoid charges arising from his apparent receipt with intent to distribute of one kilogram of cocaine from an undercover officer, it could mean that he isn’t quite the kingpin that he painted himself to be last night.

An un named nba layer estimated half the league smokes marijuana after Haslem got caught. Someone should do an indepth documentary on drugs and sports. Im sure the two worlds intertwine behind close doors.

I'm not sure why you think race has anything to do with it.   Do you think only blacks do drugs?
