Former College Football Star Ryan Leaf Arrested for Burglary: This is Not a Repeat From Last Week

Ryan Leaf mug shotFormer college football stud–and NFL bust–Ryan Leaf was arrested for burglary on Monday, just days after posting bail for the same crime. When you can’t even stay out of trouble until you’ve gone to trial for your last crime, you know you’ve got a problem.

According to ESPN:

Leaf was first arrested on Friday after police found oxycodone pills in his golf bag that an acquaintance later said Leaf stole from his home. Then early Monday, three days after posting a $76,000 bond, he was arrested again on accusations that he broke into another home outside Great Falls, Central Montana Drug Task Force commander Chris Hickman said.

The owners walked into the home Sunday afternoon to find a “tall man with an athletic build” inside, Hickman said. The man told the owners he had the wrong address and left.  The owners later discovered three bottles of prescription medication missing and phoned police. After describing his truck, his clothes and his “shiny black loafers,” they picked Leaf out of a photo lineup.

A search of Leaf’s home turned up 89 hydrocodone pills loose in the pocket of a bathrobe. Authorities do not believe those were the same pills that were taken from the burgled home, Hickman said.

Leaf, of course, is famous for not living up to expectations in the NFL, and freaking out in a locker room interview after loss. Video footage below, for the two people out there who have never seen it.
