Amarillo police issue two arrest warrants for Leaf

Ryan Leaf could face up to 20 years in jail for violating terms of his probation, after two arrest warrants have been issued for the former NFL quarterback.

The warrants came from Randall County police. The former No. 2 overall pick in 1998 -- after Peyton Manning -- was first arrested when police found oxycodone pills in his golf bag that an acquaintance claimed were stolen from his home by Leaf. He then was arrested on an allegation he broke into another Montana home a few days later, authorities said.

Leaf appeared Wednesday on the warrants in District Court via video from the Cascade County Jail in Montana. His total bond is now set at $126,000.

According to report in the Amarillo Globe-News, police arrested Leaf March 30 and April 2 in Great Falls, Mont., on charges of possessing oxycodone taken from houses. Randall County Criminal District Attorney James Farren filed a motion earlier this month to revoke Leaf's 10-year probationary sentence, which was agreed to in 2010 after Leaf pleaded guilty to eight felony charges.

Citing court records, the paper reported that three days after posting a $76,000 bond for drug and burglary charges, Great Falls, Mont., authorities arrested him a second time on charges of burglary, theft and two counts of criminal possession of dangerous drugs.

"Each allegation is a violation of probation terms," Farren said.
