Auston Matthews Charged

The Leafs acknowledged the charges in a statement provided to the media.

“The Toronto Maple Leafs are aware of the complaint of disturbing the peace against forward Auston Matthews. 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.”

The Police Report

The Report was filed based on a report by security guard Fayola Dozithee. She told police that on May 26th at approximately 2:00 am, she was in her locked car outside the condo building where Matthews lives. At this time she noticed that someone was trying to open her car door.

She “jumped out of her vehicle to find out who was trying to get in her car … and noticed it was Auston and his friends,” reads the police report, which was obtained by the Toronto Star. “She confronted them and the response from Auston was they wanted to see what she would do and they believed it would be funny to see how she would respond. Fayola found this very disturbing and put her on edge.

“Fayola said she’d told Auston and his friends, ‘I am a female, I am a military vet with sever (sic) PTSD.’ She also told them it wasn’t funny and how could they think it would be funny to try and get in a female’s vehicle at 2 a.m. in the morning.”

She told police Matthews and his friends appeared to be drunk.

“She continued to say that Auston would say that he thought it was funny. Fayola said she then began to tell them to just leave.”
