Ryan Leaf Wanted on Drug and Burglary Charges

By June 11, 2009

Follow me on:

It's probably been a while since former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has felt like a wanted man. At least on a football level. Unfortunately for him, he's wanted now, but in a way that generally isn't deemed desirable.

Perhaps the biggest and most well known draft bust in NFL history, Leaf was indicted on May 20 for nine counts relating to drugs and burglary. At this time he has yet to surrender to authorities and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.

“At one point he said he was going to turn himself in,” Randall County prosecutor Lacy Miller told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “He hasn’t turned himself in yet, and if he gets picked up he’s going to be arrested. If he gets picked up out of our jurisdiction, then we will extradite him or use whatever means we have to get him back. Right now he is a wanted individual.”

Leaf has been charged with allegedly breaking into an apartment in Canyon, Texas on October 30 and stealing Hydrocodone (Vicodin) pills. Leaf also allegedly took a West Texas A&M player’s Hydrocodone pills and replaced them with fakes.

He has never been officially charged, though, for replacing a No. 2 overall draft pick with a fake back in 1998.
