In case you missed the news yesterday, reports emerged that Toronto Maple Leafs superstar Austin Matthews had been charged with disorderly conduct this past offseason after exposing himself to a female security guard in his hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona.

According to a police report Matthews and his friends attempted to play a prank on the security guard which fell flat at which point Matthews pulled down his pants and “grabbed his rear end.” In other words: he mooned her.

The report says surveillance video shows a male subject walking toward the complex elevators with his pants around his ankles.

Court documents show that Matthews has a court hearing for disorderly conduct in Scottsdale City Court on Wednesday. He will not be in attendance, but it’s expected that his representation will be. 

The Leafs, in turn, made a statement following yesterday’s news:

Suffice it to say, this is NOT the kind of distraction the Leafs need heading into a pressure packed season.
