Sam Hurd jailed indefinitely after failing drug tests

It’s been a bad few days for former Cowboys and Bears receiver Sam Hurd.

Over the weekend, a codefendant pleaded guilty to drug trafficking charges and agreed to testify against Hurd.  On Tuesday, a federal judge ruled that Hurd should remain in jail after failing two drug tests and allegedly buying drugs while facing charges of trying to buy drugs.

As a result, Hurd’s $100,000 bond has been revoked, according to USA Today.  He’ll remain behind bars until his trial.

Hurd apparently didn’t agree with the outcome.  He reportedly turned to his family and supporters after the hearing and said, “Lies.”  Former teammate Marion Barber was among the group that attended the hearing.

Hurd’s lawyer said after the hearing that the facts were “exaggerated” and part of the testimony was “fabricated.”

The trial currently is set for October 9.

    Shouldn’t the rule be that PFT only show the player in the uniform (or if multiple times, last one) that they wore when they did the perp walk?

    If I were a Cowboys fan I’d be p’od. Dude was a Bear.

    How fitting. To the left, a picture of a Cowboys receiver who gets arrested and will likely end up in jail. To the right, a picture of a different Cowboys receiver who gets arrested and will likely end up in jail.

    Do Not Pass Go

    At least he didn’t mess with the PFT days without an arrest count.

    Well, Hurd did start trafficking drugs while in Dallas, so I don’t know why they should show him in a Bears uniform, if that was your reasoning. Also what moron buys drugs while facing charges for buying drugs?

    I have more empathy for a dude with a drug problem than I have for a dude who hits his mom.

    Hurd > Dez Bryant

    I used to underwrite bail bonds, I would have loved to underwrite that bond. Easy money. Can you say exoneration? That is the bond is exonerated… not the defendant. Plus he had to be on electronic monitor, or at the very least, federal servailance. What did he have to post?

    I had to look at the date, because the drug testing. Hurd is going to jail for a while

  21. djspman says: Aug 29, 2012 7:24 AM

    So lets get this straight… Mr Hurd allegedly bought drugs while facing charges of trying to buy drugs. hahahahahahahahaha.

  22. thetroofishere says: Aug 29, 2012 7:25 AM

    You had to dig deep to find a picture of Hurd making a catch in a Dallas uniform.

  23. nokoolaidcowboy says: Aug 29, 2012 8:11 AM

    Sorry, but there is no hope for this guy. He is obviously already in self destruct mode.

  24. richndc says: Aug 29, 2012 8:41 AM

    this man needs help, I hope he gets some.

    Cowboy fans have nothing to complain about with Hurd being identified as a former Cowboy. Hurd is just the latest in a long list of accused druggies to come out of Dallas. Michael Irvin, Nate Newton, Troy Hambrick, Leon Lett, Torrin Tucker, …

    Nobody cares about the Bears. Stay tuned for a special report on the Dallas Cowboys’ Dez Bryant’s attempted murder of three Irving residents via flatulence in an elevator.

    Vinny Sutherland, Richard Dent, Doug DuBose, Tim Harris, Bill Romanowski, Antonio Bryant, Randy Moss, Aldon Smith, I could go on. And on. And on.
