Chargers lineman says he was sexually assaulted by TSA agent

• by Olafimihan Oshin

"I really just got sexually assaulted by TSA at @JohnWayneAir.  After I asked the gentleman to please stop BC I'm uncomfortable and I feel that this part of the check is unnecessary (After he felt what was needed)," Chargers defensive end Sebastian Joseph-Day wrote in a tweet on Friday. "Then they told me I was the problem after 3 TSA agents swarmed me."

In his Twitter thread, Joseph-Day called the incident with the TSA agent "extremely unnecessary and dehumanizing," adding that he feels he'll have to "jump through hoops" just to file a complaint on the situation. 

I'm not sharing this on Twitter for sympathy," Joseph-Day, who joined the Chargers after winning a Super Bowl with the crosstown rivals Rams in 2021, wrote in a tweet. "I'm sharing this so this group of gentleman and staff aren't allowed to do this ever again to another human being."

Joseph-Day said that a TSA supervisor threatened to call the police on him if he didn't finish the search.
