Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd arrested for trying to buy a huge load of drugs to distribute? Say it isn’t so! Unfortunately, it does it appear the NFL player was apprehended in Chicago by undercover agents on Wednesday night after allegedly attempting to purchase massive amounts of marijuana and cocaine in North Texas.
The Sam Hurd arrest was reportedly the result of an investigation launched back in July while he was still playing for the Dallas Cowboys. Undercover agents arranged a meeting with Hurd at Morton’s The Steakhouse in Rosemont, TX on Wednesday night. At the meeting, Hurd allegedly told an informant that he wanted to buy “five to 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week for distribution in the Chicago area.”
