When Ryan Leaf was arrested on Friday, he quickly posted bond and was released. When he was arrested again on Monday, he had no such luck.
Leaf will stay in jail in Great Falls, Montana while prosecutors in that state work with prosecutors in Texas, where he is on probation after pleading guilty to eight felony charges in 2010. The Montana Probation and Parole Office told the Great Falls Tribune that Leaf could be held in a Montana jail for up to 30 days while the two states determine whether Leaf should be shipped to Texas for violating his probation.
Leaf got a 10-year suspended sentence in Texas in 2010. Authorities say a decision on whether he now has to serve that sentence will come after Leaf’s Montana charges have been resolved.
It’s not clear why Leaf’s first arrest didn’t result in the 30-day hold, but the second arrest was enough. Both of Leaf’s arrests were the result of allegedly breaking into homes to steal prescription medication. The photo here shows Leaf making a court appearance this week via video link from jail.
