Sam Hurd Arrested: Chicago Bears' Background Check Revealed Nothing

ChicagoNow's Adam Oestmann:

Hurd was arrested on Wednesday night during a meeting in which he negotiated a deal to purchase 10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana on a weekly basis. Since news of the arrest hit, teammates and coaches have been doing their best to come to terms with the situation. Said Lovie Smith:

"I am in shock over it," Smith said. "Never saw it coming. My dealings with Sam here as most of you would probably say the same has all been good. He's a guy that showed up every day to go to work."

Hurd was scheduled to appear in a Chicago federal court on Thursday at around 5:00 p.m. CT, according to the Tribune.
