Ex-Cougar Leaf kicked out of drug treatment center

GREAT FALLS, Mont. -- Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf has been moved from a central Montana drug treatment center to the state prison in Deer Lodge.
Regional probation and parole administrator Dawn Handa told the Great Falls Tribune Thursday that Leaf was terminated from the Nexus Treatment Center in Lewistown after violating the conditions of the placement, including threatening a staff member.
Leaf was charged with breaking into two houses and stealing prescription painkillers. He pleaded guilty to burglary and criminal possession of dangerous drugs. He was sentenced in June to five years with the Department of Corrections with the recommendation that he spend the first nine months in a locked drug treatment facility.
Leaf also faces the revocation of a 10-year probationary sentence for a 2010 drug and burglary conviction in Texas
