'Modern Family' Star

Boob Grabber Charged

Indecent Assault

Exclusive Details

The perv fan who groped "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland's chest in Australia this week has been charged with assault with an act of indecency, TMZ has learned.

The 29-year-old man was arrested Tuesday outside a "Modern Family" after-party in Sydney. Hyland was posing with fans when he allegedly grabbed her breast.

23-year-old Hyland immediately left the event in tears while her security handled the creep.

Hyland was remorseful about bailing on the event, saying sorry to all the fans she, "didn't get to say hi to but I had to leave due to an inappropriate touch of a fan."

Real macho kind of guy, groping little girls he doesn't know. You'd think she'd have a bodyguard, and if she does that he would have taken this pervert out with a punch in the teeth. And if she does have one fire him, doesn't seem to be very effective.

He is some Arab looking probably Muslim wise guy looking to disrespect the infidel women. That being said, is the breast really that sexual? I can see slapping him and telling him to get lost, but do you need to arrest people for that? I know we consider breasts taboo in our culture, but they are meant to be grabbed in nonsexual ways by children aren't they?

What the guy did was wrong (he grabbed her rear end, not her boobs as reported). However i take issue with what her boyfriend tweeted following the incident. The guy made it out as though ALL Australian males are sick perverts and "America respects women". He is a very ignorant individual.

There are billions of sexual assaults worldwide. There was something like 250,000 sexual assaults in the US ARMY (check out The Invisible War!!).

Modern Family is severely overrated (Ed O'Neil being the only quality member of the cast), the sooner they get out of Australia the better.

If she didn't want 'em grabbed she wouldn't show them off so much on her program.
Talk and act like a slut - get treated like the slut you are!

The country where he comes from allows that kind of stuff to happen. That is now Australia's immigration problem.
