Morrissey Claims He Was Groped By San Francisco Airport Security

(Radio.com) Former Smiths frontman Morrissey alleges that he was sexually assaulted while traveling from San Francisco International Airport. The incident, which he gives a highly detailed account of his fan website, True to You, reportedly occurred when Moz was going through security.

"Before I could gather my belongings from the usual array of trays I was approached by an 'airport security officer' who stopped me, crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles," Morrissey writes. "He quickly moved away as an older 'airport security officer' approached."

Coincidentally, Morrissey was being accompanied by two members of British Airways Special Services while traveling, who "were horrified at the sexual attack and suggested that I lodge a complaint."

In the post, Morrissey also describes the resulting confrontation between he and the security officer, before lamenting, in his mind, the futility of lodging an official complaint.

"Should you find yourself traveling through San Francisco International Airport, you should expect sexual abuse from the so-called 'security officers' who, we are unconvincingly warned, are acting only for our security," Morrissey wrote, signing off, "Do people have minds?" Read more here.
