Houston (CBS Houston)- Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has been under scrutiny the past few weeks for his play on the field but what happened Tuesday night at Schaub’s residence is what people are wanting to talk about.
“There really wasn’t an incident,” Schaub said on Wednesday. “No one came to our home or approached our door. It’s no secret where we live, my wife and daughters. People do drive-by, people know where we are but there was no incident.”
Schaub continued with what happened Tuesday night and admitted that he did contact team personnel.
“There have been some things that have gone on in the street, passerbys, people taking pictures,” Schaub. “We went through the proper channels and team security and let them know what was going on and alert them. No one was screaming obscenities to my knowledge.”
For what it’s worth, @houstonpolice NOW admits that there were reports filed:
Schaub said he’s very comfortable with where he lives and doesn’t plan to move to a gated community anytime soon.
“There’s passionate fans out there for better or worse,” Schaub said. “You hate for it to come to that cause we’re better than that as a society and community. It’s the nature of what we do. The only thing that can correct that is going out and beating the St. Louis Rams this week.”
Schaub was asked what was it that made him feel like he needed to contact team security and he responded, “When you see multiple people driving down the street taking photos of your home and you’re not too sure why, that usually lends itself to contact team security.”
Schaub then told the media that this didn’t just happen last night but rather it’s been an ongoing thing.
“My main focus is to make sure my family is safe.”
