Ryan Leaf Releases Statement Following Arrest

Ryan Leaf released a statement on Friday night, hours after he was arrested on burglary, theft and drug charges. Leaf was reportedly picked up at his probation officer's office and booked into a detention center in Great Falls. He posted the $76,000 bond and was released a short time later.

Here is the statement in full:

"I've made some mistakes, and have no excuses. I am using the tools I've learned to move forward rather than backwards, and will be open to talking about the details in the days to come. I am confident that there will be further understanding when the facts are revealed, and feel very blessed for all of the support, especially from my friends and family."

We don't yet know why Leaf was arrested, nor do we know the details surrounding whatever incident caused police to pick him up. As a commenter noted earlier, it's possible these charges stem from Leaf's original arrest back in Texas -- the charges from Friday appear to match those from a few years ago.

Edit: Or maybe not. No idea and I'm not going to guess.

But we still don't know whether Leaf failed a drug test, didn't report to his PO at the correct time, or was wanted in connection with some kind of burglary. And we won't until further details are released.

Please keep that in mind when commenting on the arrest.
