A Georgia runner has been charged with sexual battery for allegedly slapping and grabbing the buttocks of TV reporter Alex Bozarjian while she reported on a race last Sunday.
“You violated, objectified, and embarrassed me,” Bozarjian wrote on Twitter after the incident on the Savannah Bridge. “No woman should EVER have to put up with this at work or anywhere!! Do better.”
Thomas Callaway, 43, came forward and apologized for slapping her saying that he was just raising his arm to pat her on the back or shoulder and did not realize he had touched her butt. “It was an awful act and an awful mistake,” he said.
Sexual battery is punishable by a year in prison in Georgia.
