Chicago Bears veteran wide receiver Sam Hurd was arrested in Chicago after he allegedly attempted to purchase drugs from a North Texas supplier, according to a federal complaint.
According to the Chicago Tribune:
Hurd told an undercover agent that he wanted up to 10 kilograms of cocaine and a half ton of marijuana per week that he could distribute in the Chicago area. According to the document, Hurd told the agent that he would pay $25,000 per kilogram of cocaine and $450 per pound for the marijuana.
The Bears organization released a statment saying:
“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.”
Hurd signed a three-year deal with Chicago worth $5.15 million and received a $1.35 million signing bonus.
