It’s one thing to burn a player’s jersey out of frustration or boo him or clamor for him to be benched. It’s entirely another to track him down at his home at berate him and invade his private life. Sadly, that’s reportedly what a few Houston Texans fans did to beleaguered quarterback Matt Schaub.
A source close to law enforcement told The Fred and Ted Show late Tuesday evening that Houston Police were contacted by the NFL after fans approached Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub at his home and berated him for his recent poor play.
No arrests were made.
“A fan went to his house and told him off,” said the source, adding that another person “took pictures of his family,” which were allegedly posted on Facebook. Fortunately, neither Schaub nor anyone in his family was hurt.
The irate fans left on their own accord before police could respond, and it’s believed Schaub and the Texans contacted NFL Security which asked for assistance from the Houston Police Department after the incident, according to the source.
Good thing no one was hurt. Here’s what you have to look forward to, T.J. Yates.
UPDATE: Houston Police are saying that they were not called to Schaub’s home, but NFL security received a report from the Schaub family that an unidentified person pulled into their driveway and started yelling obscenities and taking pictures. So not quite as disturbing as initially reported but not exactly benign either.
