    I like to rip on Leaf as much as the next guy but his life seems to be going in a tragic direction. Hope he can turn it around.

    Ex-Charger Leaf indicted on drug, burglary charges

    http://www3.signonsandiego.com/stories/2009/may/21/ex-chargers-leaf-indicted-drug-burglary1727/?chargers



    Thursday, May 21, 2009

    Former Chargers quarterback Ryan Leaf has been indicted on drug and burglary charges in Texas as part of an ongoing grand jury investigation into his use of prescription medication.

    Leaf, 33, recently has been in a drug rehab in British Columbia, according to the Randall County, Texas, district attorney's office. Last November, amid reports that he asked a player for a pain pill to help an old wrist injury, Leaf was placed on leave from his assistant coaching job at West Texas A&M.

    “We think the evidence will show that he obtained drugs in various ways from various individuals or by using prescriptions that were not his,” Randall County District Attorney James Farren said Thursday by phone.

    Farren said they have no evidence anybody else committed crimes. He also said the evidence shows the drugs were for Leaf's own consumption. One of the drugs involved was Hydrocodone, a pain reliever.

    Farren said Leaf faces nine indictments: burglary, delivery of a simulated controlled substance and seven involving obtaining a controlled substance by fraud.

    Farren declined to get into specifics of the matter while the case is pending.

    “Our grand jury is continuing the investigation because there is sufficient reason to believe there are additional violations,” Farren said.

    Leaf could not be reached for comment.

    Police in Canyon, Texas, believe he broke into an apartment in Canyon on Oct. 30 and stole an unknown quantity of Hydrocodone, according to the Amarillo Globe-News. The drug had been prescribed to an injured player living there, Canyon police Lt. Dale Davis told the newspaper.

    “There were signs of a forced entry,” Davis said. “A window in the back of the home was (damaged).”

    Davis couldn't be reached for additional comment. Farren said they would ask Leaf to voluntarily return to Texas to face charges. If he does not return voluntarily, they will begin the process of extraditing him.

    After his infamous football career, Leaf had sued Chargers doctors for medical malpractice in 2002, alleging that a wrist and shoulder injury were not properly treated. He later dropped the case. A former confidant of Leaf said the wrist had bothered him for some time after he stopped playing.

    Leaf played in the NFL from 1998-2001, a career considered one of the most tumultuous and biggest busts in league history after being chosen second overall by the Chargers in the 1998 draft. Quarterback Peyton Manning was chosen first by Indianapolis.

    “It's sad when someone with a lot of talent finds himself in this situation,” Farren said. “At the same time, we don't have special rules for special people, and I'm just doing my job. I didn't relish the opportunity to take Ryan Leaf to a grand jury.”

    But doesn't she come from a lot of wealth?
    If he was smart, he would have taken all that money that he made in his short lived career and invested in quite a few businesses.

    You figure he made at least 20 million after the agents got their share and all else was done.
    Imagine if you were handed 20 million at age 26!!! You could party your *** of and buy some businesses. Get proper education to run them too.

    The more I read about what he's charged with... the more I think you're right :(

    He may be a jerkface but I wouldn't wish that kind of life on anyone. Maybe this little run in with the law will get him back on track.

    He would be only one of a few people that I would not feel sorry for if that happened.
