URBANA -- A former football player for Urbana High School is back in town to face theft charges. Police say Darren Hursey conned an 85-year old woman into investing more than $16,000. He promised the money back with interest, but took off to Florida. Police arrested him for domestic violence last month. An officer saw the warrant for his arrest in Champaign County and sent him back this week.
