Man, celebrities and big sports stars just can not stay away from drugs! It's ridiculous!
The latest to go down is Sam Hurd, a wide receiver for the Chicago Bears. Apparently, in true idiot fashion, decided to try and buy more than a pound of cocaine with interest in also buying more than a thousand pounds of weed — with the idea of distributing it in the Chicago area. Kingpin he is not, because the feds got him.
Then, he made a deal to pay $25,000 per kilo of cocaine, and $450 per pound of weed. The deal, of course, was made with the undercover cop.
If convicted, he could be facing 40 years in prison and a $2 million fine.
Why would anyone do this, let alone someone who has no need or reason to?? Hurd is reportedly paid over $5 million for three years to play a game for a living!
Oh. And Hurd was also supplying "high end" clients with drugs — including a list of NFL players that goes well into the double digits, which the cops now have.
That's what you get!
