A male fan has been arrested for groping actress Sarah Hyland at an event in Australia this week.
The “Modern Family” star was posing with fans at a party at The Sebel Pier One in Sydney on Tuesday, when an unidentified male, who asked her for a picture, grabbed her breast.
Following the incident, the 23-year-old abruptly left the venue and took to Twitter.com to apologize for leaving early.
She wrote on Thursday, “Sorry to all the fans outside the qantas event that I didn’t get to say hi to but I had to leave due to an inappropriate touch of a fan.”
