Former NFL QB Ryan Leaf arrested on misdemeanor domestic battery charge

Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge from Palm Desert, California, on Friday.

Leaf was detained around two local times and has been held in the Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility at Banning, California, on a $5,000 bond, according to the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department.

A leaf has been the No. 2 overall selection from Washington State at the 1998 NFL draft by the San Diego Chargers. Leaf played only three seasons in the NFL, casting for 14 touchdowns and 36 interceptions, and made the dubious distinction as one of the biggest draft busts in league history.

Following his tumultuous NFL tenure, Leaf’s personal life fell apart. In 2009, Leaf was indicted on drug and burglary charges in Texas. He spent two decades in prison after being detained in 2012 for breaking into a house in Montana to steal prescription medications and violating his Texas probation.

Leaf spent the 2019 school football season employed as an analyst for ESPN.
