Ryan Leaf Declared Fugitive From Justice By Texas Law Enforcement

Former NFL and Washington St. Cougars quarterback Ryan Leaf is now the subject of an arrest warrant issued by the state of Texas, where he's wanted for fraudulently obtaining a controlled substance. Leaf was placed on 10 years probation in Texas two years ago after a burglary arrest, and Texas contends that his recent string of arrests violates that probation.

According to the Great Falls Tribune, Leaf could face up to 20 years worth of prison time in Texas. He's currently being held behind bars in Montana, facing four felony charges. On March 30, Leaf was arrested in Montana on burglary and drug charges. Days later, he was arrested for doing the same thing again.

Leaf was among the best quarterbacks in conference history as a college star, but struggled in his NFL career after being drafted alongside Peyton Manning. In recent years he'd appeared to be on a solid track while working as a coach.
