It was 14-years ago that Leaf was considered as a possible #1 overall pick in the draft, but he was selected behind Peyton Manning, who would go on to have a legendary career. Leaf, had a troubled NFL career, never living up to the lofty expectations when the Chargers opted to pick him with the 2nd pick in the 1998 draft. He would play only 3 years in the league before retiring following the 2001 season. He finished his career with 3666 yards passing, with 14 TDs and 36 INTs.
Details of the arrest have not yet been made public.
