Fan arrested and charged for groping Sarah Hyland

Modern Family’s Sarah Hyland experienced a rather unpleasant moment at a party hosted by Qantas airlines in Australia yesterday. The 23-year-old actress was approached by a fan, who initially asked for a photo but then grabbed her breast. She screamed, “Don’t touch me there!” and reportedly burst into tears, then left the party. She later tweeted an apology to her fans, saying: “Sorry to all the fans outside the #qantas event that I didn’t get to say hi to but I had to leave due to an inappropriate touch of a fan.” Her boyfriend Matt Prokop, who wasn’t in attendance at the event, was furious and tweeted: “To the [expletive] who assaulted Sarah tonight I hope to God you don’t see next week.” An unidentified 29-year-old man was arrested in relation to the incident and charged with indecent assault. He’s been granted conditional bail and is set to appear in a Sydney court on March 14. ~Yara Matar
