New Arrest Warrant Issued After Gay Porn Star Matthew Rush Failed to Appear in Drug Court
Gay porn star Matthew Rush (birth name Greg Grove) was arrested back in September and charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession/use of drug paraphernalia. As reported by Str8UpGayPorn (Link NSFW), Rush didn’t appear at his court date last week and a Matthew Rush arrest warrant was issued on Valentine’s Day. As of press time, he hasn’t yet been arrested, but if it occurs, it’ll be Grove’s fifth arrest in the last year.
The Matthew Rush arrest warrant follows an assault charge
Earlier this year, Grove was arrested for assault and battery against his boyfriend. Grove claimed he had struck his ex in self-defense after his ex forcefully pushed him out of the house. He later claimed the strike occurred accidentally when his ex “ran into his forearm” (link NSFW).
A Florida court declined to prosecute the case citing a lack of information.
Rush became famous as a muscular versatile-bottom performing as a lifetime exclusive with Falcon Studios, but his career with them ended in 2009. In 2010, he earned a Grabby Award and GayVN Award in the category “Best Versatile Performer.” His films include Whorrey Potter and the Sorcerer’s Balls and Full Access.
He also appeared in Bruce La Bruce’s 2010 porno-horror film L.A. Zombie, the lowest audience-ranked LGBTQ film on Rotten Tomatoes.
His short-lived retirement ended in January 2012 when he resumed performing in gay porn films.
Matthew Rush is merely the latest adult film star to wind up in the news. In February, gay-for-pay porn star (and known white supremacist) Cameron Diggs was arrested for trafficking meth in Dallas, Texas.
