Julius Peppers’ father, who happened to be a Nash County North Carolina deputy, was busted for drug possession. From the WRAL.com:
George Thomas Kurney, 50, of N.C. Highway 581 in Bailey, is the father of Julius Peppers, who starred on the basketball and football teams at the University of North Carolina before going pro with the Carolina Panthers.
He was arrested Wedesday along with Donald Earl Bullock, 46, of Sims School Road in Sims, on charges of possession of cocaine.
The Nash County Sheriff’s Office, Tarboro and Wilson police departments and the State Bureau of Investigation collaborated on the investigation. Both men were being held Thursday in the Wilson County Jail.
The former deputy lost his job, so that’s two guys in that family that are currently out of work.
Did Pep’s dad go all Jack Bauer circa 24 Season 3 when he got hooked on drugs while being undercover or did he go the dirty cop route? Hope all works out for the Peppers family.
