Sam Hurd Arrest: Receiver Had To Turn Over Guns To Authorities

According to a report from ABC 7 in Chicago, former Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd not only had to pay $100,000 to get out of jail but also had to turn over several guns to authorities:

Wide receiver Sam Hurd, now formerly of the Chicago Bears, agreed to surrender numerous guns to federal authorities as a condition of his being freed on bond.

Hurd turned over the guns, including an assault rifle, about the same time last Friday that a $100,000 cashier's check was posted and he was released.

One of the guns turned in by Hurd was an AR-15 assault rifle. There also is some speculation that he does not have a Firearm Owners Identification Card -- which residents of Illinois must have in order to legally purchase and own firearms -- but that has yet to be proven.
