Ryan Leaf was arrested early Monday morning in Montana on charges of burglary, theft and two counts of criminal possession of dangerous drugs — two days after posting bail for similar charges.

Central Montana Drug Force Commander Chris Hickman says Leaf was arrested in Great Falls on charges stemming from a burglary on Sunday and was also being detained on a probation violation. The former NFL quarterback has a court hearing later Monday but cannot be released from jail since the probation violation does not carry a bond.

Hickman did not provide details about the latest charges.

Leaf had been arrested and charged on suspicion of burglarizing an acquaintance's home for prescription painkillers on Friday. He was freed on $76,000 bond and is scheduled for a court appearance Monday.

He released this statement through his publicist Friday night:

“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.”

Leaf, the former No. 2 overall pick by the San Diego Chargers who is considered one of the biggest busts in NFL history, had surgery to remove a benign tumor from his brain stem and later underwent additional radiation treatments last year.
