Crime: Attempted to buy a ridiculously large amount of cocaine in Chicago
Hurd was never an All-Pro wide receiver in the NFL and was never going to make the kind of money that All-Pro wide receivers make. So it's not a surprise that he wanted to try and find other ways outside of football to make money, even though he was in the NFL when he tried to do it. What was surprising, though, was that he decided that the best way to bring in some extra cash was to attempt to build a drug trafficking business. He had plans to cop 10 kilos of cocaine a week to distribute throughout the Chicago area. Fortunately, his business never got off the ground and he never actually made a single sale. But it was wild to think that he even tried to do it before getting busted by the feds and sentenced to 15 years in prison.
