A model is constructed to study the statistical properties of irregular trajectories of a log-gas whose positions are those of the complex eigenvalues of the unitary Ginibre ensemble. It is shown that statistically the trajectories form a structure that reveals the eigenvalue departure positions. It is also shown that the curvatures of the ensemble of trajectories are Cauchy distributed.
