NFL security guard who masturbated in front of cheerleaders fired

Published: 22 December 2016


The NFL security guard caught masturbating near a group of cheerleaders has been fired.

US media reports that the man was working at Sunday’s clash between the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders at Qualcomm Stadium in front of more than 68,000 spectators. 

A video of the incident shows the security guard reportedly pleasuring himself while frequently glancing over at the cheerleaders who are just metres away.

Although, what the man was doing wasn’t immediately clear because he was seen with his hand in his pocket making repeated motions while not actually exposing himself.

However both clubs had deemed the security guard’s actions as inappropriate.

San Diego Police are now investigating the incident and Elite Security has since apologised claiming it has “acted swiftly to terminate the employee involved”.

The original video, which was posted to Facebook, has since been deleted.


The woman who allegedly recorded the clip, said the incident took place before the game started and that the guard attempted to do so again during halftime, before a fan yelled at him to “take your hands out of your pants”.

She also said she had tried to contact Elite Security to inform them of the incident, but they didn’t respond until a day later.

“The Chargers, Elite Security as well as the San Diego Police Department are aware of the disturbing actions of an Elite Security staff member at Sunday’s game,” a statement from the Chargers’ read.

“We apologise to any fans who may have witnessed the incident.”

The security guard cannot be identified because of privacy laws, however Elite Security told the New York Post that he had passed state and federal background checks prior to employment.
