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.
