The Receiver's a Dealer: Bears' Hurd Arrested

The Bears' season took another odd turn today as news broke that receiver Sam Hurd was arrested outside a nightclub for attempting to buy a kilo of cocaine with the intent to distribute

According to AM 670 The Score, Hurd is a top dealer in the city, and sold to a number of NFL players to boot.

The Bears issued the statement, "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." Coach Lovie Smith said at practice today that Hurd remains a member of the team. I imagine the Feds have a big say in for how much longer.

UPDATE: Hurd was cut from the team on Friday.

Here is the complaint filed by the Department of Homeland Security against Hurd.
