Man who tapped reporters rear on live TV charged with sexual battery

Footage of the incident went viral over the weekend after Alex Bozarjian, who was covering the race for NBC affiliate WSAV, called out the creep in a social media post.

A Georgia man who allegedly tapped a female reporter’s rear end on live TV as he ran behind her during a fun run was charged with sexual battery on Friday.

Alex Bozarjian was covering the Savannah Bridge Run for NBC affiliate WSAV on Dec. 7 when a man, later identified as Thomas Callaway, 43, appeared to slap her butt as he ran past her and her camera.

In video of the incident, Bozarjian is taken aback after the swat and stares off in the direction that Callaway ran before resuming her report. The moment went viral after Bozarjian called out the assault.

“It’s not OK to help yourself to a woman’s body just because you feel like it,” Bozarjian told CBS News. “It’s not playful. He hurt me both physically and emotionally.”

Bozarjian filed a police report saying the man slapped and grabbed her and Callaway was booked and charged Friday afternoon.

Callaway publicly apologized for the incident on WSAV on Tuesday.

Georgia state law defines sexual battery as making “physical contact with the intimate parts of the body of another person without the consent of that person.” It is a misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail.
