According to the Cascade County Detention Center in Great Falls, Montana, former second overall pick in the NFL Draft, Ryan Leaf, has been arrested for drugs, burglary and theft charges. The detention center says that Leaf has already paid the $76,000 bond.
Details have not yet been made public, but here’s what is known according to the Great Falls Tribune:
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.
Leaf was booked on felony charges of burglary of a residence and criminal possession of dangerous drugs, plus a first-time charge of misdemeanor theft, Cascade County Detention Center Officer Robert Rivera said.
The former Washington State and San Diego Charger released a statement late Friday:
“I’ve made some mistakes, and have no excuses. I am using the tools I’ve learned to move forward rather than backwards, and will be open to talking about the details in the days to come. I am confident that there will be further understanding when the facts are revealed, and feel very blessed for all of the support, especially from my friends and family.”
Once a winner, always a winner.
