Leaf remains no-show on charges in West Texas

DALLAS (AP) _ Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf remains a no-show in West Texas on burglary and drug charges.

Randall County District Attorney James Farren says Leaf hadn't turned himself in by Thursday afternoon to face one count of burglary to a habitation and eight lesser drug-related counts associated with the painkiller Hydrocodone.

Farren says he doesn't have a deadline for the former No. 2 draft pick to turn himself in. The prosecutor in Canyon, Texas, says the appearance of a deadline came from Leaf's attorney contacting Farren's office and indicating Leaf planned to surrender.

Leaf flopped as San Diego's quarterback and was released in 2000 after three seasons. He was quarterbacks coach at West Texas A&M in Canyon, near Amarillo.
