There were reports that went out last night of Ryan Mathews getting caught up in an incident downtown with him getting arrested, but according to the UT, those reports are not true.  Another man was arrested after a fight outside of Side Bar in downtown and Mathews was not involved.

“We can say that he was definitely not arrested by SDPD,” Rose said, “but there might have been a separate arrest that lead to that (report). … It was not Ryan Mathews.”

Could you imagine the drama that could have come of his arrest? People are already frustrated about his lack of performance and injuries. People still remember when he got in a car accident late in Point Loma. An arrest downtown would have just added to the fans frustrations.
I am happy that he didn’t get into any mess this weekend. We just need to stay out of the news right now. Any news that comes out during this time of the year is usually bad news.

    27 NFL players have been arrested since the Superbowl.. glad RM24 wasn’t the 28th.. sheesh. Can we just stay out of the Gaslamp, folks? I know they are on vacation, but there are tons of other ways to party than the drunken mess that happens down there most weekends.

    I was SO scared at first…I want him to succeed SO bad this year…I’m just glad it’s not true. But before it was confirmed false, my second thought was, boy that was sure unselfish of RM. He knows how hard it is for writers in the offseason, and he was just trying to give Ernie the hookup.

    I knew the reports weren’t true when they didn’t mention anything about him being injured.
