And no, it wasn’t to Taco Bell for their newest menu item, the Pitaphile, which is now on sale for 99 cents (but if you’re 12 or younger, it’s free). NFL draft bust Ryan Leaf was finally caught at the US-Canada border near Washington. Leaf was indicted on nine felony counts by a Texas grand jury in May, stemming from breaking into a college football players house and stealing his painkiller medication. From Y! Sports:
James Farren, the district attorney in Randall County in West Texas, said Leaf was arrested Wednesday by federal customs agents. Legal assistant Jennifer Bonstein said Leaf declined to waive extradition during a hearing Wednesday afternoon in Bellingham, Wash., about 90 miles north of Seattle.
Bill Kelly, Leaf’s attorney in Texas, said his client was returning to Texas to turn himself in by a Thursday deadline.
“I assume when he was crossing the border, they picked him up,” Kelly said.
Actually, that headline should probably indicate that Leaf was picked up on his return to the United States from Canada. Apparently all you need to get into Canada is a disappointing resume’. I have no idea why they call it the Great White North. I mean, have you ever seen a shark in Canada?
