Tommy Callaway, the runner who slapped a young reporter's rear on live TV has pleaded guilty to misdemeanor sexual battery. Alex Bozarjian was covering a popular race in Savannah, Georgia, when the shocking incident happened.
"He helped himself to a part of my body," Bozarjian later said on "CBS This Morning."
It was later discovered that Callaway was a youth minister and Boy Scout leader. He spoke with Inside Edition last December.
"There was a misjudge in character and decision-making," he said at the time.
Following his plea on Tuesday, Callaway was sentenced to a year of probation and fined $1,000.
"I finally got some closure," Bozarjian tweeted." I’d say this is where accountability meets forgiveness. Your body, your rules."
Callaway was banned from Boy Scouts and from taking part in any future races.
