The video was captured by an attending Twitter member and quickly went viral.
An Elite security guard has been fired after footage of him pleasuring himself in front of the Charger Girls in plain sight went viral last weekend.
An investigation into the matter by Chargers security officials resulted in the termination of the young staffer.
The unnamed guard was captured doing the autoerotic act by a Twitter user named LOV.
It shows him in the signature red Elite security wind-breaker watching the cheerleaders perform with his hand down the front of his pants.
Said LOV in her post: “Guard was openly masturbating RIGHT IN FRONT of us during the game, while watching the cheerleaders jump up and down!!! I can't believe this was allowed. Such a complete disregard for women's rights and public decency! I am truly horrified at this guard lack of respect for women's rights.”
Chargers learned about the incident on Monday reports ABC 10 News which resulted in an investigation into the allegations.
Director of Chargers security said at the time, the team was concerned and taking the matter very seriously, “We’re looking into it to determine exactly what happened, and if it happened, who is responsible.”
Elite released the following statement today regarding the incident:
Elite has become aware of the social media posting of inappropriate actions of an Elite staff member at Qualcomm Stadium on December 18th.
Elite would like to apologize to anyone who was offended by this isolated incident.
Additionally, Elite has opened a formal investigation into the matter and has acted swiftly in terminating the employee involved.
Elite insists on the highest moral standards from our employees.
Elite’s standard operating procedure is to employ security officers that pass a required background check through the State of California Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Elite has confirmed that this guard did in fact pass all state and federal background screening processes and successfully completed all of the licensing requirements.
There was nothing in the screening process that would indicate that this type of conduct was foreseeable.
Elite has been providing staffing at Qualcomm Stadium for over twenty years and has never experienced this type of incident involving any of its employees.
Elite has many loyal hard working employees and they should not be judged by the actions of this one regretful isolated incident.
Due to privacy laws, we are unable to release the name of the employee involved. Elite is cooperating with all relevant entities regarding this matter.
The viral video was recorded Sunday, December 18, when the Chargers played the Raiders.
