Leafs' Matthews Faces Disorderly Conduct Charge


Recommended Posts

Toronto Maple Leafs center Auston Matthews is facing a disorderly conduct charge after being involved in an incident in May in his hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona.


According to court records, Matthews, 22, is being charged with disruptive behavior or fighting. He has a pretrial conference scheduled for Wednesday morning. The summons was issued July 23.


"The Toronto Maple Leafs are aware of the complaint of disturbing the peace against forward Auston Matthews," the Maple Leafs said in a statement released Tuesday. "Auston is cooperating fully with the relevant authorities, but neither he nor the Club will comment any further out of respect for the process involved."


According to the police report obtained by ESPN, the incident occurred May 26 at 2 a.m. local time. A female security guard was sitting inside her car outside the condo building where Matthews lives when she was disturbed by the sound of someone trying to open her door. She allegedly got out of her car and confronted Matthews, who she said he was intoxicated.


As Matthews walked away, he "pulled his pants down, bent over and grabbed his butt cheeks," though he kept on his underwear, the woman told police.

Pretty stoked, it's Auston Matthews.


You could, like, have a laugh about it, chalk it up as a great story, and move on.


Or, you could press charges and be lame.

Maybe this. If it was 1962.


6-4, 235 pound dudes can't force their way into women's cars in 2019.


And rightfully so.
