Ryan Leaf: Prison Bound!

by at . Comments

Just when you thought he'd already fallen as far as a former NFL quarterback could, Ryan Leaf is being moved from drug rehab to prison in Montana.

He was thrown out of treatment for bad behavior.

Dawn Handa, regional probation and parole administrator, said:

"The Montana Department of Corrections terminated Leaf from the treatment program and placed him in prison after he violated conditions of his drug treatment placement."

"The violations included threatening a program staff member."

The #2 overall pick in 1998, who flamed out of the league soon after, was charged with breaking into two houses and stealing prescription painkillers.

Ryan Leaf was arrested last year for felony drug possession. He eventually pleaded guilty to burglary and criminal possession of dangerous drugs.

The ex-Washington State star was sentenced to five years in prison with the recommendation that he spend the first nine months in a locked drug treatment facility.

Part of the reason his sentence was so harsh? He was already serving a 10-year probationary sentence for a 2010 drug and burglary conviction in Texas.
