Contrary to report, Ryan Mathews not arrested


While there were some dubiously sourced reports floating around the internet this morning, Chargers running back Ryan Mathews apparently has not been arrested.

According to U-T San Diego, Mathews was not involved in an alleged bar fight. PFT has separately confirmed he was not arrested by the SDPD, and there’s also no indication of an arrest of anyone named Ryan Mathews in San Diego County’s online jail record.

“We can say that he was definitely not arrested by SDPD,” San Diego Police Department Sgt. Robin Rose told U-T San Diego, “but there might have been a separate arrest that lead to that [report]. . . . It was not Ryan Mathews.”

The officer did confirm that there was a fight outside a nightclub, and that someone not Mathews was arrested, but did not release that person’s name.

    Check the ER. I think he collided with a butterfly and broke every bone in his body. The butterfly was unharmed …

    I heard he tried to take a swing, but blew out his knee, arm and shoulder in the process.

    It’s getting to be where it’s more newworthy to report on what NFL players haven’t been arrested.

  14. schmitty2 says: Jul 1, 2013 11:53 AM

    Everyone knew it wasn’t true since he doesn’t like contact.

    If there was a fight outide a nite club Mathews would have lost, as he cannot take a hit.

  16. sundaymorningwood says: Jul 1, 2013 11:59 AM

    The only crime committed here is the $ he owes the chargers for poor performance.

    Funny how NFL players NOT getting arrested has become a headline.

  18. fearthehoody says: Jul 1, 2013 12:11 PM

    Hes Franklin Guitierez soft!

  19. hedleykow says: Jul 1, 2013 12:17 PM

    Is PFT trying to make the case that officially it is now easier to report which players have NOT been arrested?

  20. JC says: Jul 1, 2013 12:21 PM

    Why do grown men feel the need to go to a club? Time to grow up fellers.

  21. buddysguys says: Jul 1, 2013 12:24 PM

    was it on TMZ? If not it aint true…

  22. grimmlock42 says: Jul 1, 2013 1:02 PM

    Thank you PFT for clearing the good name of Ryan Mathews. What would us raider fans do without him. May his fumbling and inability to find the first down marker continue to lead the chargers for many years to come.

    Though Ryan Matthews was not arrested, he was treated at a local hospital for minor bruises and is expected to be out for 6 months.

    If Ryan Matthews was involved in a bar fight, it had to have been “Ladies Nite Out” at the bar.
