Stop us if ya Hurd this one ...

Apparently, Chicago Bears receiver Sam Hurd was arrested on Wednesday by undercover Homeland Security agents after attempting to set up regular purchases of marijuana and cocaine to expand a drug distribution system he already had going.

The Chicago Sun-Times broke the story earlier.

Hurd, Sam

The Bears said this morning: "We are aware of Sam's arrest and are continuing to gather details. We are disappointed whenever these circumstances arise."

The former Dallas Cowboys receiver signed a three-year, $5.1 million deal July 29. He has only eight catches this season so far, and has been caught once.

According to reports, Hurd met with an undercover Homeland Security agent to buy 5-10 kilograms of cocaine and 1,000 pounds of marijuana per week.

He would then distribute the narcotics in Chicago, according to his (foiled) plan.

Most stunningly, Hurd said he was already dealing four kilos of cocaine every week in the greater Chicago area with a co-conspirator, but that wasn't cutting it.

The agency believes Hurd committed 21 possible violations of federal statute in a timeline that goes from July of this year through last night's apprehension.

Safe to say, despite his close physical proximity to Tim Tebow last Sunday in the Bears' OT loss to the Denver Broncos, those two ballers are poles apart.

Tim Tebow would not approve of this one bit.

Parents and onlookers in Lakeville, Minn., were aghast after 52-year-old Steven Wilson was arrested and charged with fifth-degree domestic assault after he reportedly GRABBED HIS SON AND PUNCHED HIM in the face after a loss at basketball.

Witnesses reported seeing Wilson and his eighth-grade son, whose name was not released, walking down the hall at Lakeville South (Minn.) High when the dad grabbed the child with one arm and began punching him in the face with the other.

Nearby parents had to physically intervene before the altercation was broken up.

After calling local police to the scene, Steven Wilson was arrested and spent the night in jail before posting $10,000 to get out without conditions.

Wilson's son didn't require medical attention, fortunately.

Pity Playboy model Megan Dills. Not only did her beloved Kentucky Wildcats basketball squad lose last weekend, she was injured by Indiana fans storming the court.

She is set to miss her next photo shoot after being caught up in the melee that followed the Hoosiers' buzzer-beating, 73-72 upset of top-ranked UK.

"All those fans came out of their seats and rushed the floor like idiots," Dills, a die-hard Wildcat fan, told Kentucky sports blog VaughtsViews (dot) com.

"Next thing I knew, I was knocked down 5-6 steps ... I was scared to death."

Dills, who first posed for Playboy's "Girls of the SEC" spread in 2007, said she suffered a swollen ankle and torn tendons after the post-game fracas.

She is listed as doubtful for her upcoming Playboy shoot this Saturday.

"I just can't do the shoot with my ankle like it is," Dills said, adding "But that's okay because I do a lot of them." That's good to hear. Keep the chin up.

"What happened up there would never happen at Kentucky," she adds, getting in a nice dig at IU. "They were so distasteful and not very sportsmanlike."

"You would have thought that they won the national championship then."

Hardly. Indiana leaped to #18 nationally with the win, while UK is still #3.

Lindsey Vonn will not be sacking Tim Tebow. Literally or otherwise.

The Olympic skier and the Denver Broncos quarterback have been linked together recently, after she was spotted in the Tebow family box at Sunday's game.

Tebow and Vonn have also been seeing hanging out at the ESPYs and at ski races, and she has even been "Tebowing" - assuming the QB's pre-game pose / prayer - in recent weeks. So it's not like these rumors came completely out of nowhere.

That doesn't mean they're true, though. Sadly.

  • A Lindsey Vonn Pic
  • Tim Tebow Photo

"Lindsey is just friends with the Tebow family. Anyone who is trying to suggest any more to their relationship is wrong," Vonn's rep told New York Post's Page Six.

Added the 27-year-old gold medalist herself on Twitter: "Hearing a lot of crazy rumors but rest assured I am not dating Tim Tebow (or anyone else)."

"This is an extremely difficult time in my personal life and I hope the media and my fans can respect my need for privacy on this matter," Lindsey added.

Late last month, Vonn announced her divorce from her husband Thomas, who had served as her adviser and scheduler, after four years of marriage.

She and Tebow, who is "saving himself for marriage," would instantly form one of the sexiest couples in sports, but alas. For now, all he does is win!

Tim Tebow may not be able to throw a football to save his life, but he gets the job done. Now the Broncos quarterback's greatness has been immortalized in a song.

The former University of Florida star and son of Christian missionaries has become a phenomenon in the NFL this year after a string of incredible, last-second wins.

In the face of unorthodox mechanics and Satan-worshiping haters, he's got 8-5 Denver eyeing the playoffs. More importantly, he's a meme-producing pop culture all-star!

DJ Steve Porter mashes up ESPN peeps, NFL great (and Tim's boss) John Elway, Lil Wayne and others to create the ultimate Tim Tebow tribute, "All He Does Is Win":

Follow the jump for another Tebow tribute tune, called "Super Fans" ...

Jerry Sandusky pleaded not guilty inside of a Pennsylvania courtroom today, waiving his right to a preliminary hearing in the process and avoiding any testimony from those who have accused him of child abuse. For now at least.

The disgraced ex-defensive coordinator at Penn State subsequently appeared on the courtroom steps alongside his lawyer, Joseph Amendola, who told the press:

"There will be no plea negotiations. This is a fight to the death."

Amendola added that his client also waived his appearance at the January 11 arraignment and asked for a jury trial.

A handful of alleged victims were present at the court house this morning and prepared to make their claims public , a step they will now take instead some time in 2012.

Said Howard Janet, an attorney for one of the boys who has said he showered with Sandusky: "It would have been apparent from watching those boys and their demeanor that they were telling the truth."

Two NBA fans took it upon themselves to help out their favorite team on Twitter last week, only to receive a legally threatening email from the Philadelphia 76ers.

By the end of the ordeal, though, the fans ended up with box seats to the Philadelphia 76ers’ home opener, season tickets ... and a job with the team for one.

How in the world did that happen?

76ers Logo

The 76ers launched a fan voting contest last week to choose a new team mascot between three finalists. But the team failed to get the nominees on social media.

Helpfully, Jerry Rizzo, 23, and friend Hunter Coleman, 22, went ahead and registered Twitter accounts for two finalists, @PhilEMoose and @BFranklinDogg.

They began tweeting from the accounts trying to help promote the contest.

On Friday, however, they received an official email requesting that they hand over the accounts, “pleasantly without the use of lawyers or anything like that.”

Rizzo, a communications graduate and self-described “social media sponge,” gave up the accounts in exchange for box seats and tickets ... but it gets better.

Saturday, 76ers CEO Adam Aron left Rizzo a voicemail asking Rizzo to call him back. He set up an interview that ultimately led to him being offered a job.

In the end, he was rewarded for his entrepreneurial sprit with a full-time social media position with the team - “about as close as it gets” to the perfect gig.

Football fans: Prepare to be dazzled by one of the sickest moves of the year - or any year - at any level of the sport. If we didn't know better, we'd assume Neo suited up.

Returning a punt, Wake Forest Rolesville (N.C.) High returner Petey Williams bent over backwards to avoid an oncoming tackler, then proceeded to gain a bunch of yards.

While he never quite made it to top speed and didn't score on the play, this is nevertheless one of the nastiest fakes you'll ever see. Our write-up can't do Petey justice.

Seriously, this juke is straight out of The Matrix ...

With the trade of her husband finalized, and with E! already confirming it would be filming her move to The Lone Star State, Khloe Kardashian is pretty much a quasi member of the Dallas Mavericks.

And that's okay with Head Coach Rick Carlisle, who joked to The Dallas Morning News yesterday that he wouldn't "rule out" appearing on his new power forward's reality show if asked.

A Kiss from Khloe

"I will say this: Khloe's my favorite Kardashian," added Carlisle, making it clear that winning a NBA championship allows one to open up a lot more. "She's the coolest."

Kobe Bryant, meanwhile, continued to express consternation - sorry, konsternation - over the deal, defending his now-former teammate against anyone who thought his entertainment career - sorry, kareer - got in the way of his play on the court. Sorry, kourt...

"I don't understand the criticism of reality shows and this, that and the other. I don't get it," Kobe said. "He clearly wasn't a distraction. He played his ass off. I don't get where that comes from. Now I'm getting pissed off."

God is most definitely NOT a Broncos fan and is NOT helping Tim Tebow engineer fourth quarter comebacks for Denver, according to a rep for The Church of Satan.

Magus Peter H. Gilmore, a high priest in the Church, says if God helps Tim win games, He would be actively making others lose, which makes absolutely no sense.

That being said, the Satanists acknowledge that the extremely religious quarterback may benefit from his faith, which he demonstrates often, in less overt ways.

Tebow and Satan

"Those who have a winning attitude tend to do better," Gilmore concedes.

"Whatever fuels that kind of team spirit, be it religious fervor or simply an overwhelming desire to succeed, that is the real source for success."

Now 6-1 as an NFL starter, the 24-year-old sure has that going for him.

On the flip side, they refute any notion that God is helping the Broncos win: "Satanists are atheists, and we consider any triumph to rely on a combination of skill and luck - most certainly not in any form of supernatural intervention from either Heaven or Hell."

Your take: Is God a Broncos fan?
