Morrissey lodged a complaint after he says he was groped by a security screener at the San Francisco International Airport earlier this week.
The 56-year-old singer claims that he "was approached by an ´airport security officer´ who stopped me, crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles. He quickly moved away as an older ´airport security officer´ approached".
Morrissey says he was with two British Airways Special Services workers, who advised him to lodge a complaint against the officer. A TSA spokesman denied the allegations, saying "the supervised officer followed standard operating procedures".
