Ryan Leaf Releases Statement Following Arrest

Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has run into legal issues once again. The once-great Washington St. Cougar was arrested in Great Falls Friday on burglary, theft and drug charges. Leaf was released a short time later on a $76,000 bond.

Leaf released the following statement via his personal Twitter account Friday night:

"I've made sum mistakes, & have no excuses. i'm using the tools I've learned 2 move forward rather than backwards, & will B open 2 talking abt the details in the days 2 come. i'm confident that thr will B further understanding when the facts R revealed, & feel vry blessed 4 all of the support, esp from my friends & family."

It is possible that Leaf will be in some serious trouble, as he was already on a 10-year probation stemming from a 2009 indictment.
