Sam Hurd Arrested: Bail Set At $100,000

Now-former Chicago Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd appeared at a hearing on Friday afternoon during which Judge Young B. Kim set his bail at $100,000. The hearing was attended by several Bears staffers, according to the Sun-Times, as well as Hurd's wife and father. His lawyer responded to reports that Hurd had been distributing drugs to other NFL players, calling the rumors "patently and totally false:"

"With respect to the rumors that Sam was supplying drugs to other members of the NFL, out of respect to the NFL, out of respect to his teammates and out of respect to other players, he 100 percent denies that allegation. It is patently and totally false."

Hurd's next court appearance will come in Texas if he is indicted on the charges levied against him.
