Social Media Reacts To NJ Man, Edward Cagney Mathews, Who Went On Racist Rant Getting Arrested At His Home 

Edward Cagney Mathews was caught in viral videos being very rude to his neighbors, so now he’ll pay the price.

The 45-year-old NJ resident was arrested over the weekend. A video of his arrest went viral. You see Matthews get put in handcuffs, and protesters surround his home and celebrate his arrest. Some angry demonstrators threw water bottles and other items at Matthews and the officers.

Initially, Matthews was charged with bias intimidation and harassment after a woman reported him to police on Friday (July 2). The unidentified woman claims Matthews was constantly harassing her. In another viral video, you hear Matthews shout racial slurs and offensive language at his neighbors.

Officials said Mathews would face additional charges of bias intimidation and assault after police viewed viral videos of him harassing, threatening, and yelling racial slurs at neighbors, NBC reports. Another news source says neighbors accused Matthews of engaging in racial incidents that date back four years.

As of now, Matthews hasn’t been convicted of any crime related to this case. He was later released.
