Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews faces a hearing Wednesday morning in Scottsdale, Arizona, stemming from a citation for disorderly conduct.
Matthews was not arrested in the alleged May 26 incident, though the case was forwarded to the prosecutor's office for review, said Sgt. Ben Hoster, a spokesman for the Scottsdale police.
According to the police report obtained by USA TODAY Sports, a security guard was in her locked car outside the condo building where Matthews lives, when she heard someone trying to open her door at 2 a.m.
She got out of the car, recognized Matthews and confronted him and his friends. She told police that Matthews "said they wanted to see what she would do and they believed it would be funny to see how she would react."
The guard, who said the group appeared intoxicated, told them she was a military veteran with severe PTSD and that what they did wasn't funny and they should leave.
One of Matthews' friends talked to the guard and asked her not to report the incident. During that conversation, Matthews walked away.
"After he walked away some distance, Auston pulled his pants down, bent over and grabbed his butt cheeks," the report said.
The woman told police that Matthews still had his boxers on. The investigating officer went to the manager's office and saw video of a man walking near the elevator with his pants around his ankles. The manager told the officer it was Matthews.
"The Toronto Maple Leafs are aware of the complaint of disturbing the peace against forward Auston Matthews," the team said a statement. "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.”
Matthews, 22, was drafted No. 1 overall by the Maple Leafs in 2016 and is one of their top players with 205 points in 212 career NHL games.
He signed a five-year, $58 million contract in February that pays him $15.9 million this season
