Talk about pulling for the home team. Police are investigating an NFL security officer, who was fired after he was allegedly caught masturbating during a San Diego Chargers game on Sunday.

A video that was posted on Facebook revealed that the unidentified guard was pleasuring himself just feet away from cheerleaders at Qualcomm Stadium during Sunday’s NFL game between the Chargers’ and the Oakland Raiders. Officials from the San Diego-based Elite Security company verified that the guard was fired on Tuesday afternoon, less than one day after the footage went viral.

“Elite would like to apologize to anyone who was offended by this isolated incident,” the company revealed in a statement to the New York Post. “Additionally, Elite has opened a formal investigation into the matter and has acted swiftly in terminating the employee involved.”

The man did complete all state and federal background checks and fulfilled all licensing requirements, the company indicated.

“There was nothing in the screening process that would indicate that this conduct was foreseeable,” the statement added. “Elite has been staffing at Qualcomm Stadium for over 20 years and has never experienced this kind of incident involving its employees. Elite has many loyal, hard-working employees and they should not be judged by the actions of this one regretful isolated incident.”

The company declined to reveal the identity of the security guard caught playing pocket pool due to privacy laws but said they were cooperating with law enforcement.

Team executives confirmed the “disturbing actions” in an email to The New York Post.

“The Chargers, Elite Security, as well as the San Diego Police Department, are aware of the disturbing actions of an Elite Security staff member at Sunday’s game,” officials stated. “We apologize to fans who may have witnessed the incident. Elite Security is investigating the incident and has vowed to take immediate and appropriate action.”

Lieutenant Scott Wahl of the San Diego Police affirmed that they are investigating the event, but refused to discuss what charges, if any, the man might face.
