Former Chargers QBLeaf Surrenders On Burglary, Drug Charges In Texas

Posted: Updated:

CANYON, Texas (AP) - Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has surrendered to Texas authorities to face burglary and drug-related charges.

Attorney Bill Kelly says Leaf turned himself in Friday at the Randall County Jail in Canyon, where the former No. 2 pick was indicted in May after coaching quarterbacks at West Texas A&M for three seasons. Kelly says Leaf posted $15,000 bail and headed back to Washington state.

Leaf faces one count of burglary and eight drug-related counts associated with the painkiller Hydrocodone. He was arrested Wednesday in Washington state after entering the U.S. from Canada. He posted bond there and flew to Texas.

San Diego drafted Leaf out of Washington State in 1998, and the Chargers released him after three disastrous seasons. He played part of one year for the Dallas Cowboys.
