Georgia reporter groped on live television by participant in running event

A reporter in Savannah, Georgia, was groped on live television when a runner participating in the annual Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run smacked her behind while jogging past her live shot on Saturday.

Alexandrea Bozarjian, a reporter with WSAV — an NBC News affiliate — was covering the race, in which participants run across the Talmadge Bridge when the incident occurred.

A clip of the groping was posted to Twitter, where it was viewed nearly 5 million times as of 12 p.m. on Sunday.

In the video, participants are running past Bozarjian and waving to the camera, with some coming so close to the reporter that she appeared startled.

“Woah! Not expecting that,” Bozarjian said with a laugh as one participant almost collided with her.

She continued talking, saying, “Some people dress up in costume … so it’s very exciting.”

As Bozarjian said “exciting,” a man in a navy blue top, sun glasses and a hat passes the reporter and appears to grope her. Borzarjian appears caught off guard, stopping in her tracks and staring off at the man.

She takes a moment to regain her composure, before jumping back in to her coverage.

On Twitter, Bozarjian addressed the groping.

“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,” she wrote.

Bozarjian did not immediately respond to a request for comment made by NBC News, but a spokesperson for the Savannah Police Department confirmed they had been in touch with her.

“We’ve talked to her about the situation. I can’t discuss it further, but it’s up to Alexandrea on how she wants
