HPD: Reports of 'angry fans' confronting Texans QB Matt Schaub at home untrue
Houston police are clarifying reports that angry fans confronted Texans quarterback Matt Schaub at his home.
“Contrary to some reports, there was not a group of ‘angry fans’ outside the Schaub residence on Monday,” the police department tweeted Wednesday.
Schaub has come under fire for his play on the field. Most recently, he threw three interceptions in Houston's blowout loss to San Francisco on Sunday night that extended the team's losing streak to three games. His first interception was returned for a touchdown, marking an NFL-record fourth straight game he threw a pick-6.
A Houston Police Department spokeswoman confirmed to KPRC-TV in Houston on Wednesday that police were never called to Schaub’s home.
HPD said a family member reported seeing a suspicious male taking pictures in the driveway of the home and reported it to a third party. The third party later reported the incident to police.
The Houston police spokeswoman said it is possible that an off-duty officer may have responded to the home.
On Tuesday, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak said he is sticking with Schaub as his starting quarterback.
The Texans, 2-3 on the season, host the St. Louis Rams Sunday at Reliant Stadium.
