He was previously charged with drug possession and burglary. Now, before Friday’s arrest, he was working for ESPN and is also an ambassador at sober houses in New York and Los Angeles.

Leaf is the former No. 2 overall pick by the San Diego Chargers in the 1998 NFL Draft. His career was a bust in the league.

Leaf appeared in 25 games, including 21 starts. He was 4-17 as a starter.
