Toronto Maple Leafs star Auston Matthews' disorderly conduct charge has been dropped.

Matthews and the female security guard who filed the complaint against him reached a settlement, a spokesperson for the City of Scottsdale said, according to Dave Feschuk of the Toronto Star.

Under Arizona law, an individual charged with a misdemeanor offense can come to a financial agreement as a means of settling the case.

"On Nov. 13, the matter was settled between the parties and the criminal matter was dismissed," the spokesperson said.

The charge stemmed from a May 26 incident involving Matthews and a female security guard in the forward's hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona.

According to the police report of the incident, Matthews and a group of males tried to open the security guard's car door at 2 a.m. in the parking lot of his condo complex while she was doing paperwork inside of the vehicle. After she exited the car, Matthews dropped his pants, bent over, and grabbed his buttocks as he walked away. His underwear appeared to stay on.

The report also detailed that Matthews, who appeared intoxicated, told her he thought it would be funny to see how she would respond.
