Ryan Leaf is on the lam.
The former San Diego Chargers quarterback -- heralded as one of the biggest busts in NFL history -- is wanted by the law in Texas, according to the San-Diego Union-Tribune.
A warrant for Leaf's arrest was issued May 20 in Randall County, Texas -- where nine indictments were issued involving his use of various painkillers.
From the San Diego Union-Tribune:
"Police in Canyon, Texas, believe he broke into an apartment there on Oct. 30 and stole an unknown quantity of the painkiller Hydrocodone. Hydrocodone also is known by the brand name Vicodin. Hydrocodone had been prescribed to an injured player living there, according to the police.
"Leaf also had been charged with trying to obtain a controlled substance by fraud and delivery of a simulated controlled substance to a West Texas A&M player. Leaf allegedly took the player's prescription Hydrocodone pills and replaced them with fakes."
Leaf, now 33, had been an assistant coach at West Texas A & M, but was placed on leave after he allegedly asked a player for a pain pill.
Leaf was the second overall draft choice by the Chargers in 1998. He lasted only three years with the team, and his name has become synonymous with highly touted quarterbacks taken high in the draft who don't pan out.
