Just F****ng Don’t Talk To Ryan Leaf, All right! KNOCK IT OFF!!
World-Galaxy-class NFL bust Ryan Leaf has been indicted by a grand jury on drug and burglary charges stemming from an alleged break-in into a Canyon, Texas apartment and providing an incomplete medical history to doctors in order to procure Hyrdocodone.
The indictment handed up Wednesday in Canyon charged the 33-year-old former San Diego Chargers quarterback and former West Texas A&M quarterbacks coach with one count of burglary to a habitation, seven counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and one count of delivery of a simulated controlled substance.
This is a completely shocking turn of events, wouldn’t you say? One would think the stability and poise he displayed as an NFL quarterback would have carried over to his personal life.
Leaf may face extradition as he is currently in, ahem, “drug rehabilitation” in British Colombia, according to a report in the Amarillo Globe-News. I’m sorry, but my guess is the only drug rehabilitation Leaf is doing right now is obsessively scraping his bowl in hopes he might be able to come up with a decent resin ball until his dealer shows up.
After flaming out as an NFL player, Leaf caught on as an assistant football coach at West Texas A&M in 2006, a position he subsequently resigned from in November of 2008.
Man, talk about hitting rock bottom and then smashing through that only to take a face-first splash into a septic tank.
Matt Stafford, this could be you next. Just a friendly reminder.
