Houston police deny report of fans insulting Texans' Matt Schaub at his home
UPDATE: The Houston police department is now denying that the reported incident took place.
"Contrary to some reports, there was not a group of 'angry fans' outside the Schaub residence on Monday," the police department stated on its official Twitter feed. "A family member reported seeing a suspicious male in the driveway of the residence taking pictures. Police were not called to the home. No other information to release at this time."
Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has had a rough start to the 2013 NFL season.
The product of West Chester East High School has had interceptions returned for touchdowns in four straight games as his team - on paper one of the NFL's best - has stumbled to a 2-3 start.
Having a losing record is fair game for criticism from fans, but some Houstonians might have taken things a bit too far.
According to CBS Houston, some fans approached Schaub at his home, verbally insulted him and took pictures of his family that may have been posted on Facebook.
The angry fans left the scene before police could respond, which at least means it was probably a quick confronation. Schaub also reportedly contacted the NFL's security office after the incident, and people there talked further with Houston's police.
