Matias was found in possession of an unlicensed gun back in November 2017. The weapon was reportedly found inside a blood-stained boat that Matias allegedly crashed in the Parana River that flows through a few countries in South America.

Matias has had several encounters with the law over the years and was arrested in May when he reportedly threatened a civilian with a gun following a car accident.
