On Tuesday, news broke that a member of former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu’s family had been arrested for trying to extort $1.5 million from the Kansas City Chiefs safety.

On Wednesday, a bond hearing was held for Geourvon Sears, and in it, some of his family members made some wild claims against Mathieu.

Per WDSU reporter Travers Mackel, who was at the hearing, Geourvon’s brother claimed Mathieu put a hit on him:

Sears’ mom also had some claims to make against the star athlete, saying Mathieu sent threatening texts:

There was also a statement made that Mathieu drove by the Sears’ house over the weekend, but a federal agent said that wasn’t true:

Sears’ bond was not lowered, so he was taken to jail. Mathieu’s attorney released a statement calling the Sears family’s testimony slanderous:

This is a bizarre case that just seems to be getting messier by the day.
