According to a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department police report, Leaf was arrested in Palm Desert, California, and booked on a single domestic battery charge. It’s unclear what incident took place that resulted in his arrest.
He was being held on $5,000 bail at Larry D. Smith Correctional Facility in Banning, California, per the police report. He was released the same day and is scheduled for a court hearing in September.
The 44-year-old is one of the biggest draft busts in NFL history. The former Washington State standout went No. 2 overall to the San Diego Chargers in the 1998 draft behind Peyton Manning. However he lasted just three seasons in the league — two with San Diego and one with Dallas. In total, he threw just 14 touchdowns and 36 interceptions while compiling a career 4-17 record.
He later pled guilty to felony burglary and criminal possession of a dangerous drug in 2012, spent time in jail and violated his probation in Texas in 2014 when he broke into a home in Montana to steal prescription drugs.
