Leaf Posts $45K Bond, Apparently Hasn’t Blown All Of Signing Bonus Yet

Uh-oh. He's got that crazy look in his eye. (Bellingham Herald)

If there was ever a town that Ryan Leaf would be willing to pay $45,000 to exit, it would have to be Bellingham. The former Washington State University quarterback did just that yesterday, shortly after being arrested crossing the U.S.-Canada border in Blaine.

By posting bond, Leaf agreed to turn himself in to Texas authorities by a Thursday afternoon deadline. The ex-first round draft pick is wanted in Texas for drug and burglary charges.

Leaf has fallen on hard times recently, what with his drug addiction, job loss, and home invasion tactics, but that hasn’t kept him from saving a few pennies for a rainy day.

One has to wonder if paying $45,000 for one night of freedom is entirely worth it. Let’s just hope he had a good time. My guess is he went to see The Hangover at Bellis Fair. Good flick.

  1. I bet Bill Polian loves this. As if Peyton winning him a super bowl ring wasn’t enough, everytime he hears about Ryan Leaf and his exploits he’s gotta be thinkin “Man, good thing I didn’t pick that bum.” Ryan Leaf however did help the Chargers indirectly receive LaDanian Tomlinson by ruining their franchise for the next 4 years
