Ryan Leaf Charged With Four Felonies From March Arrest

Ryan Leaf has had a tendency to get himself into trouble over the last two decades. The once-promising quarterback prospect has seemingly been in a free fall since being drafted, with his latest fallout coming from a March arrest for burglary and possession of illegal drugs. On Friday, Leaf was charged with four felonies, two for burglary and two for criminal possession of a dangerous drug, according to a report from CBS Sports.

If convicted, Leaf faces a maximum prison sentence of 20 years on each burglary charge and five years for each possession charge.

An arraignment has not yet been scheduled. A message left with Leaf's attorney in Great Falls was not returned Friday afternoon.

Leaf is jailed without bond on a 30-day hold on charges that the Montana arrest violated the terms of his probation from a 2010 plea deal in Texas. In that case, Leaf was accused of burglarizing a player's home while he was a quarterbacks coach for Division II West Texas A&M and an investigation turned up that Leaf had obtained nearly 1,000 pain pills from pharmacies.

It sure does seem like Leaf has gotten himself into some serious trouble with the law here. Perhaps the inevitable jail time he will face will finally straighten him out, but that doesn't seem too likely given his track record. It'll likely be months before we get any kind of final court decision.
