SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - San Diego police are investigating a security guard caught on tape apparently masturbating on the field at Sunday’s Chargers-Raiders NFL game at Qualcomm Stadium.

A Lemon Grove woman recorded the video from the stands and posted it to her Facebook page Monday. The woman’s family confirmed that children were sitting next to them.

“So clearly Elite Security nor the San Diego Chargers care that they have a masturbating security guard at the game,” the woman posted on Facebook.

The woman wrote she made “several attempts to call both organizations with no concern for the Charger Girls, Charger Fans, or Kids. So yeah this happened right in front of us yesterday.”

The woman had no idea her video would go viral and be shared tens of thousands of times on social media. 

SDPD has interviewed the woman as part of a criminal investigation, which could lead the security guard to face misdemeanor charges of committing a lewd act in public.

A spokesperson for SDPD confirmed the investigation, telling CBS News 8 that the guard’s name will be released if charges are filed.

“Under normal circumstances if he is cited or arrested, then yes his name is public info and we release it. No arrest or cite has occurred at this point,” said SDPD Lt. Scott Wahl via email.

The video appears to show the guard with his hand in his pocket masturbating as he stands at the end zone just a few feet away from a 21-year-old Chargers Girl cheerleader.

Elite Services, the company that hired the guard, issued a statement Tuesday saying the guard has been fired.

“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,” according to a news release posted on the company’s web site.

The release said the employee passed a background check before being hired and “there was nothing in the screening process that would indicate that this type of conduct was foreseeable.”
