Leaf ‘Not a Fugitive From Justice'

His lawyer says indicted former San Diego Chargers quarterback Ryan Leaf will surrender on drug and burglary charges in Texas.

Bill Kelly said that Leaf is "not a fugitive from justice" and will return next week.

Prosecutor Lacy Miller says a warrant was issued May 20 when Leaf was indicted. Miller says Leaf has been working in British Columbia.

Leaf is charged with burglary to a habitation. He also was indicted on seven counts of obtaining a controlled substance by fraud and one count of delivery of a simulated controlled substance.

Leaf coached quarterbacks at West Texas A&M in Canyon, where the indictment was returned.
