Georgia Reporter Pursuing ‘Sexual Battery Case’ Against Butt-Slapping Runner

We recently shared the shocking footage of a runner smacking a reporter’s butt during a live broadcast. WSAV’s correspondent Alex Bozarjian even spoke on Twitter to call the man out for violating her:

“To the man who smacked my butt on live TV this morning: You violated, objectified, and embarrassed me. No woman should EVER have to put up with this at work or anywhere!! Do better.”

According to the latest update on this, Bozarjian is now pursuing sexual battery charges against the runner, TMZ Sports has learned. She explained that the River Bridge Run in Savannah, Georgia runner identified as Tommy Callaway, smacked and grabbed her buttocks while she was reporting. The 23-year-old says she felt a “sharp sting” and it caused her to pause during the live broadcast.

Bozarjian says Callaway did reach out to her station a few hours later to try to apologize and he reportedly offered to come to the station to do it in person. He’s even speaking out again to let the public know that he is sorry for the butt-smack, and says he was just “in the moment.” The 43-year-old married father of two who is a youth group leader at his church, as well as a Boy Scout leader, explained:

“I got caught up in the moment,” he told Inside Edition. “I was getting ready to bring my hands up and wave to the camera to the audience, there was a misjudge in character and decision-making.” He further explained, “I touched her back; I did not know exactly where I touched her.”

Callaway said he does intend to “do better.”

“I totally agree 100 percent with her statement and the two most important words were her last two words, ‘do better.’ And that’s my intention,” he said. I did not see her facial reaction as I just kept on running. If I did see her facial reaction, I would have felt embarrassed and ashamed and stopped and turned around to apologize to her.”
