UPDATED 6/11/2009: WARRANT ISSUED FOR LEAF’S ARREST
Apparently this warrant was issued on the same day the indictment was issued. As I said when the charges were announced, this guy is hiding in Canada somewhere, likely a remote area on the Yukon Territories. Again, he should have enough money to just disappear, but then again, he is obviously not very bright, considering the nature of these charges. Meanwhile, ESPN is reporting the other former NFL quarterback with legal issues, Michael Vick, had a bowl of Apple Jacks this morning and brushed his teeth with Aqua Fresh toothpaste.

While the Euro-American media, specifically ESPN, continues reporting each time Michael Vick uses the restroom and what he ate for breakfast yesterday, the indictment of another former NFL quarterback, Ryan Leaf, the 1998 second overall pick, has gone almost completely unreported.
Ryan Leaf was drafted #2 overall in the 1998 NFL Draft.
The man many have refer as the biggest bust not only in NFL history, but all of sports history, Leaf is now facing up to 20 years in prison, on 7 counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud, one count of burglary, and one count of delivery of a controlled substance.

The delivery of a controlled substance charge stems from a September 18, 2008 (A.D.) incident. Leaf allegedly kept for himself the pain killers he was supposed to obtain for Kittley, and delivered to Kittley sugar pills or some other substitute, to cover up his crime. Kittley likely discovered the crime either by noticing the pills looked different or swallowed one and did not feel the normal effects.
The burglary charge stems from an October 30, 2008 (A.D.) incident when Leaf allegedly broke into the apartment of Anthony Chase Horn, a West Texas A&M sophomore offensive lineman.
What makes this story all the more interesting is the fact Leaf apparently had been in rehab for sometime in late 2008 and early 2009; in CANADA.

The Euro-American media have not done a play-by-play of this story as they have the “black” NFL quarterback, Michael Vick, who has also had legal troubles. This is because many high-profile and regular Euro-Americans are also, like Leaf, quite fond of painkillers (see Brett Favre, Rush Limbaugh, Elvis Presley, Carrie “Princess Leia” Fisher, Euro-American teenagers, etc.), and they do not want to bring extra attention to their drug of choice. Anytime there is a problem which solely affects Euro-Americans, it is humanized and not exploited for Euro-American media ratings or punished to the fullest extent of the law (see crack-cocaine vs. methamphetamines). As always, Operation Nation will try and keep you as up-to-date as possible on this story, as it will soon be ignored completely by Euro-media.
In the meantime, for those of you unfamiliar with Leaf and his NFL “career,” this video sums it up.
