Ex-Bears receiver Sam Hurd had his bond revoked on Tuesday after failing two drug tests and allegedly purchasing 30 pounds of marijuana from his cousin.
Ex-Chicago Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd is back in jail, and is there to stay. Hurd had his bond revoked by a Texas judge on Tuesday after Hurd was arrested earlier in August in San Antonio for failing drug tests in both May and June. But that's not the worst of it for Hurd: his cousin told investigators that he sold Hurd 30 pounds of marijuana after Hurd's first arrest in December, and was subsequently asked by Hurd to purchase 200 more pounds.
Hurd, who was supported in court on Tuesday by family and friends including ex-teammate Marion Barber, was arrested late last year while still a member of the Bears after a six-month investigation. Hurd allegedly attempted to buy cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week from an undercover officer. In that incident, Hurd was arrested after he returned to his car with a kilogram of cocaine given to him by the officer. He has pled not guilty to two charges stemming from that investigation.
