Richard Khamir Hurd was once a successful basketball walk-on at Baylor University. He played a full four years for the school. But he has recently made his name known around the country for his work off the court. In fact, his actions have led to his being arraigned on federal extortion charges of a man quite popular in his neck of the woods – Robert Griffin III.
Apparently, Hurd threatened to release derogatory information regarding RG III that he had obtained and possessed. He wanted a “substantial amount of money” and contacted a representative of Griffin that has the initials B.D. Many have surmised that B.D. stands for Ben Dogra, the agent at Creative Artists Agency who represents Griffin (the #2 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft).
Hurd signed a nondisclosure agreement, delivered the information, received a check, and was subsequently arrested by an undercover FBI agent. Hurd has waived his preliminary hearing on the matter.
