Police did confirm that there was a fight outside of Side Bar in San Diego's Gaslamp district on Sunday, but Officer Ed Zwibel told the U-T that Mathews was not arrested and is not a suspect.

Mathews was shocked to hear Monday morning that a report was swirling that he had been arrested.

“I don’t know how my name got twisted in all this (stuff),” Mathews told the U-T. “I don’t know why my name is even being brought up. . . . I didn’t hit anybody. I wasn’t arrested. . . . I didn’t see a fight. I didn’t see anything.”

Zwibel could not confirm if the Chargers RB was present during the fight, but told the U-T that one man injured his lip in the altercation and was taken to a hospital.
