Leaf staying in jail for a while longer

GREAT FALLS, Mont. (AP)—Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf will stay in a Montana jail a while longer while Texas prosecutors work with their Montana counterparts to revoke his probation on 2010 drug charges.

Probation and Parole Office regional administrator Dawn Handa tells the Great Falls Tribune (http://bit.ly/HU9rIL0 ) that the 30-day hold gives authorities needed time to send information between states.

Leaf, who spent time with the Chargers, Cowboys and Seahawks, was arrested Friday and again Monday on separate allegations that he broke into homes and stole prescription medication. Probation officials placed a 72-hour hold on Leaf after the second arrest. It was extended Tuesday.

Handa says offenders supervised by two states can be held without bail for up to 30 days.

A hearing set for Wednesday on Leaf’s probation status was canceled.

Ryan Leaf arrested for second time in four days
Posted by Michael David Smith on April 2, 2012,

Ryan Leaf was arrested again on Monday and accused of committing a burglary shortly after he posted bail and got out of jail after an arrest on Friday.

Central Montana Drug Force Commander Chris Hickman told the Associated Press that Leaf was arrested early Monday in Great Falls on charges of burglary, theft and two counts of criminal possession of dangerous drugs.

The new charges stem from a burglary Leaf allegedly committed on Saturday, not long after he got out of jail following his Friday arrest, which was also related to committing a burglary and illegal possession of prescription painkillers.

Leaf has a hearing scheduled for today and is still in jail.

The No. 2 overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft, Leaf is regularly named the biggest draft bust in NFL history. Leaf became hooked on prescription painkillers and was already on probation stemming from a 2010 felony conviction, but in the last year he has claimed that he beat his addiction and turned his life around.

UPDATE 12:38 p.m. ET: Reports conflict about whether the second burglary took place on Saturday or Sunday. Authorities say Leaf will remain in jail for at least a few days, as he will not be permitted to post bond for his probation violation.

At this point it's not funny anymore. Just sad. He needs help from himself.
