As of last night, TMZ was reporting that he was still in custody. No details are known about the alleged incident at this time.

Obviously, it goes without saying that Leaf is to be presumed innocent until proven guilty. That’s the system we have in America.

Having said that, this is just the latest arrest for Leaf and the latest incident that doesn’t look good for him. He spent time in prison due to substance abuse issues, he flamed out of the NFL in spectacular fashion and now he’s been arrested again.

It’s a damn shame too because Leaf appeared to be doing great on ESPN. It really looked like his life had turned around after years of struggles.
