The arrest of Ryan Leaf:
His promise as an NFL quarterback was never realized. He starred at Washington State University and was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy honoring college football's best in his junior year…
…so Ryan Leaf was the second overall pick in the 1998 NFL draft. Peyton Manning was the only player chosen before him.
But Leaf bounced around among several teams, including San Diego and Dallas…
…and then, Tampa Bay and Seattle. Injuries, poor play and bad behavior doomed his football career. Many say he's one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history.
His legal problems began in 2010 when a Texas judge sentenced him to 10 years' probation on a drug rap. Two years later he pleaded guilty to felony burglary and drug possession charges in Montana. He apologized to court after sentencing.
Leaf's sentence was suspended and he spent some time in drug rehab, but began serving a seven year prison stretch in December, 2012.
