Modern Family Star Sarah Hyland Assaulted By Fan

A man has been charged with indecent assault following an incident at a party with the Modern Family cast while they film a special episode Down Under. Actress Sarah Hyland alleges that, during a photocall at the event, the man in question groped her breast. Just for the sake of clarity, that is not an appropriate way to greet a celebrity, or, in fact, anyone.

TMZ has photos of the scene, with Hyland looking visibly (and understandably) upset in the aftermath. She "immediately left the event in tears" while a security detail arrested the groper, but later offered a Twitter apology to fans who didn't get to meet her, explaining that she had bailed because of "an inappropriate touch."
