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.
