Ryan Leaf is back in prison

Ryan Leaf was in a drug treatment facility. But after being kicked out, he's back in prison.

Peter Brouillet-US PRESSWIRE

Completely forgot about Ryan Leaf for a while, but hey here we are again. Leaf is back in prison after being kicked out of a drug treatment facility in Lewiston, Idaho, violating the terms of his probation.

The report comes from the Great Falls Tribune. Leaf was transferred to a Montana prison on Jan. 10 after being booted.

However, the Tribune learned Thursday that "the Montana Department of Corrections terminated Leaf from the treatment program and placed him in prison after he was found guilty of behavior that violated conditions of his drug treatment placement," Dawn Handa, regional probation and parole administrator in Great Falls, said in a statement. "The violations included threatening a program staff member."

Well, that sucks. Leaf had received another pretty massive break by being able to head to a treatment center. And, again, he blew it. He blew it badly. He lasted quite a while -- since July -- before being sent back to prison.

You know what ... prison is probably for the best at this point. Forget it.
