Ryan Leaf has been arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery in Palm Springs, CA … TMZ Sports has learned.
The former NFL quarterback was taken into custody around 2 PM PT on Friday, May 22nd.
According to jail records, he was booked for domestic battery — and bail was set at $5,000.
As of now (the time of this post), Leaf is still in custody.
44-year-old Leaf is listed on his booking sheet as 6’6″, 250 pounds with brown hair and blue eyes.
We’re working on the details …
Of course, Leaf was the #2 overall pick in the 1998 NFL Draft — but his career flamed out fast and his life fell apart soon after.
Leaf has been arrested multiple times for things like drug possession and burglary … but he had sobered up and became a program ambassador for an organization that runs sober houses in multiple cities including L.A. and N.Y.
He’s recently been covering college football for ESPN.
