Richard Khamir Hurd, a former Baylor basketball player is facing federal extortion charges for allegedly threatening the Washington Redskins newly acquired quarterback Robert Griffin III. Hurd was apparently planning on releasing “derogatory information” about Griffin unless he was paid.

Court documents say that last week, Hurd contacted a representative from a St. Louis agency, threatening to publicize derogatory information about a client unless he was paid a “substantial sum’’ of money.

According to other court documents, Hurd met at a Waco business Friday with someone who agreed to handle the transaction. After signing a non-disclosure agreement, handing over the information and receiving a check, Hurd was arrested by an undercover FBI agent, documents said.

What the information he had on Griffin is currently unknown, suffice it to say Griffins camp did not want it getting out.
