NBC Montana has confirmed that Great Falls native and former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf was arrested and booked into the Cascade County jail Friday.
Leaf released an official statement on early Saturday morning saying this:
?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 is a Great Falls native and was a quarterback for Washington State University and San Diego Chargers. He was recently in Montana for a book tour and sat down with NBC Montana's Kayla Anderson last week.
