Leaf arrested, charged for drugs, burglary

CANYON, Texas (AP) - Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf posted a $45,000 bond Wednesday in Washington for drug and burglary charges out of Texas after being arrested by customs agents as he returned to the United States from Canada.

James Farren, the district attorney in Randall County in West Texas, said Leaf was arrested Wednesday by federal customs agents. Legal assistant Jennifer Bonstein said Leaf declined to waive extradition during a hearing Wednesday afternoon in Bellingham, Wash., about 90 miles north of Seattle.

Wendy Jones, chief corrections deputy for the Whatcom County Jail, confirmed that Leaf posted bond Wednesday evening.

Leaf's attorney in Washington told the court Leaf would post the bond and return to Texas by himself. Leaf also was to come back to court in Whatcom County on July 16, Bonstein said.

Bill Kelly, Leaf's attorney in Texas, said his client was returning to Texas to turn himself in by a Thursday deadline.

"I assume when he was crossing the border, they picked him up," Kelly said.

The ex-Washington State University and San Diego Chargers quarterback is charged with burglary to a habitation, a second-degree felony. Leaf also was indicted on seven counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and one count of delivery of a simulated controlled substance.

Leaf coached quarterbacks at West Texas A&M in Canyon, where the indictment was returned in May.

Leaf, who resigned from West Texas A&M after being investigated for drug crimes in November, was working in British Columbia, his attorney said. Kelly, a former head football coach at the college, said Leaf "has been to rehab and successfully completed it."

Leaf, who coached for three seasons at West Texas A&M, spent four seasons in the NFL after being chosen with the No. 2 pick in the 1998 draft by the Chargers.

In his NFL career, which included stints with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Dallas Cowboys, Leaf had 14 touchdowns and 36 interceptions. He was better known for outbursts directed at teammates, coaches, fans and reporters.

I can't speak for other Charger fans, but I'm happy.

Not to be an Charger apologist, but who here wouldn't be slightly amused about the same news with Cutler?

He put us through 0.00001% of what Leaf did. Just sayin.

I agree with the train wreck part, but it's not sad at all - this guy had every opportunity in the world and pissed over all of it.

Sure, the guy had big time pressure on him when he was young - and we all do stupid things then - but he has proven, as an adult, that he is completely committed to absolutely failing at life.

I was in a nice club in La Jolla (here in San Diego) one night during Leaf's rookie season when my friend and I noticed Leaf enter the club with his entourage. Ten minutes later, I'm just standing there talking to my friend when suddenly I'm shoved to the side by Leaf as he's leaving the club. No apology or anything.

And as painful as it was to be a Charger fan during the Leaf era here, the silver lining for me was that I was glad to see that clown fail.

I don't like to see people's lives turn into train wrecks but I'll just say in this case I don't feel any sympathy. That's karma for you.
