Ryan Leaf arrested for domestic battery

Ryan Leaf

Ryan Leaf was arrested on Friday for domestic battery.

According to the Riverside County Sheriff’s jail management system, Leaf was arrested in Palm Desert, Calif. around 2 p.m. He was booked into jail an hour and a half later on misdemeanor domestic battery charges.

Leaf was being held at the Larry D. Smith Correctional facility and had a $5,000 bail.

Leaf, 44, was the No. 2 overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft behind Peyton Manning. He turned into one of the biggest busts in NFL history, throwing just 14 touchdowns and 36 interceptions during his NFL career.

Leaf has been arrested numerous times and spent time in prison before being released in 2014. He has since repaired his image and even joined ESPN last fall as an analyst.

News of Leaf’s arrest was first reported by TMZ Sports.
