Youth Minister Who Slapped Reporter’s Butt While Running Race on Live TV Feels “Horrible”

A 43-year-old youth minister and Boy Scout leader who slapped a female reporter’s butt while running a race now says he feels “horrible” about his actions. This past weekend, Tommy Calloway smacked WSAV-TV reporter Alex Bozarjian’s backside during live TV coverage of the Enmarket Savannah Bridge Run in Georgia. “You violated, objectified and embarrassed me,” Bozarjian later tweeted. “No woman should EVER have to put up with this at work or anywhere!! Do better.” Calloway was ultimately identified by his race number and banned from future events by the Savannah Sports Council. He also told Inside Edition on Tuesday that he agrees with Bozarjian. “I totally agree 100 percent with her statement,” the married dad of two says “The two most important words were her last two words, ‘Do better,’ and that’s my intention…I feel horrible.” Meanwhile, Bozarjian has filed a sexual battery report and told CBS This Morning, “He took my power and I’m trying to take that back.”
