UPDATE: According to Pro Football Talk, Mathews was not arrested.

Original article below:

San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews, whose career could be classified as a bust at this point, was arrested Sunday evening following a bar fight at local nightclub in San Diego, according to the Examiner.com. One witness, David Nieto aka Dj Wired, reported seeing a group of five Hispanic males inside the club proceed to speak to Mathews and another black male. All men including Mathews were described as intoxicated. The altercation took place outside the club gate where everyone smokes. Witnesses say words over a female were exchanged and Mathews reportedly knocked one male out cold and the individual was taken to UCSD medical hospital. The police have yet to comment on incident, and it is unknown if Mathews will be facing any charges. This will be the 32nd arrest of an NFL player since the Super Bowl, something the league is very concerned about. Matthews was the 12th overall pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, and has yet to play a full season, mostly due to injuries.
