Julius Peppers' Father Arrested On Drug Charges

It won't be a happy father's day for the Chicago Bears defensive end Julius Peppers father. Peppers' father lost his law enforcement job after being arrested on drug charges.

The State Bureau of Investigation said Thursday that 50-year-old George Thomas Kurney was arrested following a joint state-local investigation.

Nash County Sheriff’s Lt. Pat Joyner said Kurney was dismissed from his sheriff’s deputy job after his arrest Wednesday. Kurney was taken to the Wilson County jail shortly after 11 p.m. and released about an hour later on $1,000 bond.

I don't know the bond between father and son in this case, but I would think that Peppers is hoping for the best.
