In the grand scheme of crimes committed by former Baylor basketball players, this one is fairly tame.
But it’s still intriguing. And perhaps troubling.
According to KWTX.com, former Baylor basketball player Richard Hurd has been arrested for allegedly attempting to extort Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, who played college football at Baylor.
Hurd is in federal custody, due to appear before a magistrate judge at 2:00 p.m. CT.
Details of the alleged scheme aren’t known. Inevitably, they will be.
