08:02 AM ET 06.26 | Robert Griffin III would likely prefer to be dodging a pass rush these days. A former Baylor University basketball player was arrested Friday for allegedly trying to extort money from [Griffin]. Richard Khamir Hurd contacted Griffin's representatives on June 18 in the hope of receiving a sum of money in exchange for what court documents describe as "derogatory information," according to the documents and the Waco Tribune. ... KWTX also reported that Hurd was released on $25,000 bond at noon Monday. Griffin isn't identified by name in the documents on file in U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas, and neither is his agent, Ben Dogra. But sources told the Waco Tribune that Griffin was the target of the scheme.

He better get use to this. D.C. is notorious for extorting individuals.

As long as he doesn't start hanging out with Marion Barry he should be good.

It all goes back to his culminating experience in a Animal Husbandry Class he took as a Freshman. Not a big deal in Waco.

Otis B. Driftwood, I agree, could Kim Kardashian be in any way involved in this. For this guys sake I hope he stays away from her. There are words to describe her but I can't post that here as it would be deemed a personal attack on her.

I for one have never understood the interest in the Kardashian clan. Big T&A does not a beautiful woman make. Sure not her brains. Then what?

Yeah, wish my mayor smoked crack with hookers.

Just misunderstood and misrepresented.

Illinois is saying the same thing about Blagovich(sp?).

I think she's making her way to NO. She heard there's a bit of an upheaval down on the bayou and thought she'd fit in with the team.
