Sam Hurd Arrested; Bears WR Accused Of Buying Drugs To Distribute In Chicago

The arrest involving Chicago Bears WR Sam Hurd is a lot more serious than we first thought. Hurd, who was arrested in Chicago on Wednesday on federal drug charges, is accused of orchestrating a drug deal out of North Texas to distribute in Chicago.

According to the complaint, Hurd and his co-conspirators were planning to buy kilos of cocaine at $25,000 a pop and 1,000 pounds of marijuana out of North Texas and distribute it in Chicago.

The complaint, which can be read here, includes this tidbit:

...his co-conspirator is in charge of doing the majority of the deals as HURD focuses on the "higher-end" deals. HURD subsequently inquired if the UCA (undercover operative) and the CI (confidential informant involved in the case) could provide him with Mexican cellular telephones, as HURD believed that law enforcement did not have the capability of "listening" to Mexican telephones.

So he's accused of A.) buying cocaine and marijuana in Texas and B.) distributing it in the Chicago area. The Immigration and Customs Enforcement office is handling the investigation.

This is obviously a bad look for the Bears, who have released a statement on it:

"We are aware of Sam's arrest and are continuing to gather details surrounding it. We are disappointed whenever these circumstances arise. We will deal with them appropriately once we have all the information."
