Ex-Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd had his bond revoked on Tuesday by a federal judge in Texas, which will keep him in jail until his federal drug trial. Hurd was arrested earlier in August in San Antonio after failing drug tests in both May and June, violating the terms of his bond. But more damning for Hurd is that his cousin testified to selling Hurd 30 pounds of marijuana after his first arrest in December. Hurd's cousin also told investigators that Hurd asked him to buy an additional 200 pounds of marijuana.
Hurd was supported in court on Tuesday by family and friends including ex-teammate Marion Barber. Hurd was overhead telling his supporters that the new allegations were lies.
Hurd was arrested last December after attempting to buy cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana from an undercover officer while a member of the Bears. Hurd was then given a kilogram of cocaine and was arrested when he got back to his car. Hurd has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from that investigation.
