WWE Superstar Matt Riddle had an incident with a Port Authority police officer at JFK Airport on Sunday, with Riddle claiming that he was sexually assaulted and harassed.
In a post on social media, now deleted, Riddle said, “Nothing like being sexually assaulted by an officer and harassed at the JFK airport, no means no and just because I’m nice doesn’t mean yes,” he wrote, adding the “asshole” at the end.
Riddle also took a photo of the officer and posted it, saying that usually he doesn’t care but this time it was “really weird and uncomfortable and they made a point to make me feel small and useless.”
He described the experience as one of the most uncomfortable travel days he’s ever had.
“Thanks NYC you’re so progressive and accepting,” he continued.
Riddle then posted another photo on X saying he was finally leaving JFK and he never wants to go there again.
TMZ added to the story that law enforcement sources tell them Port Authority officers received a call for a “disorderly person” who was deplaning, and it was Riddle. Riddle was talked to and so were other witnesses and they were all told they were free to go with no charges filed.
An internal probe has been launched by the Port Authority and WWE is also looking at the incident.
