Sam Hurd Arrested: Judge Rules Hurd Must Stand Trial In Texas

Sam Hurd was arrested outside of a restaurant in Chicago on Wednesday night on federal charges out of Dallas, Texas, and on Thursday evening the wide receiver appeared in a federal court. There the judge ruled that Hurd will have to stand trial in Texas:

At a court hearing Thursday evening at the Dirksen Federal Courthouse in Chicago, federal judge Young D. Kim ruled that Hurd must stand trial in Texas, where the charges were filed, unless he agrees to plead guilty and wave his right to a trial.

When asked for comment, Hurd attorney David Kenner would not go into the specifics of the case, but did note that, "This isn’t the first time that the initial report looks damning. But as cases move forward, things can change dramatically."

Hurd will be held in custody overnight.
