A TV news reporter who was covering a road race in Georgia when she was slapped on the backside by a runner is seeking criminal charges against the man she said "violated" her.
Alex Bozarjian filed a sexual battery report with the Savannah Police Department on Monday, saying she wanted the department to pursue charges against Callaway. The department told NBC News on Wednesday that a detective has been assigned and the matter is under investigation.
Bozarjian was live on air Saturday covering the Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run for NBC affiliate WSAV when a few runners sneak into her shot, distracting her by waving behind her, but never touching her.
