The federal case in which former Chicago Bears and Dallas Cowboys receiver Sam Hurd was indicted for drug conspiracy took another twist Friday when it was announced his cousin, Jesse Tyrone Chavful, was arrested this week in San Antonio on similar charges.
U.S. Attorney Sarah R. Saldana of the Northern District of Texas said Chavful, 46, faces charges of conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute 5 kilograms or more of cocaine and 100 kilograms or more of marijuana.
Chavful made an initial appearance in federal court in San Antonio on Thursday and will appear in U.S. District Court for more hearings on a date yet to be determined.
