Chargers apologize over video showing security guard seemingly masturbating

Chargers

The San Diego Chargers have apologized after a video surfaced that appeared to show a stadium security guard masturbating near the team’s cheerleaders while they performed.

Some footage that was recorded by a fan and later posted on social media shows a man in an Elite Security windbreaker doing something very disturbing in his pocket while standing a few feet from the Chargers cheerleaders. We won’t show you the video for obvious reasons, but Deadspin provided it.

Shortly after Deadspin posted on the subject, the Chargers issued a statement.

“We are aware of the disturbing actions of an Elite security staff member at Sunday‚Äôs game. We apologize to any fans who may have witnessed the incident,” the team wrote. “Elite Security is currently investigating the incident and has vowed to take immediate and appropriate action.”

Elite Security, which is hired as a contractor by the Chargers for home games, put out a statement of its own.

“Elite has become aware of the social media post of inappropriate actions of an Elite staff member at Qualcomm Stadium on December 18th,” the company said. “Elite has employed thousands of people over the past 21 years, insists on the highest moral standards from our employees and regrets this isolated incident. Elite is currently investigating the incident and has no additional comment at this time.”

The incident occurred before Sunday’s game, which was the same game that left the Chargers answering awkward questions about their pregame introductions. It would be a shame if that is one of the last games the team plays in San Diego.
