Ryan Leaf has reportedly been charged and booked for burglary and drug charges, according to a report. Leaf has continually had run-ins with the law and has posted bond of $76,000 to be released. Many had believed that the former-top quarterback prospect had finally turned a corner in his life off the field, but this is a serious relapse. Here is the latest from GreatFallsTribune.com.
Leaf was arrested at about 12:35 p.m., according to Great Falls Police Sgt. Dean Bennett.
Bennett said that an abbreviated police log of the arrest states Leaf was arrested at the Probation and Parole Office at 219 5th St. S.
"One of our officers picked him up, arrested him and booked him in," Bennett said.
Bennett said that a more detailed report of the allegations against the former San Diego Chargers quarterback was not yet available.
Leaf is charged with felony burglary, misdemeanor theft and criminal possession of dangerous drugs.
"There are a lot of words running through my head right now, and not many of them are fit to be published. I'll be back later, whenever I can gather them together in a coherent, somewhat sanitary way."
I imagine this was a pretty common response among fans. Certainly not a good situation. We'll keep you updates as news continues to roll in.
