An NFL security guard has been fired after football fans reportedly caught him masturbating at a San Diego Chargers game on Dec. 18 (video below).
A Facebook user captured the uncomfortable moment on video, where the employee moves his hand under his pants while standing just a few feet away from the team's cheerleaders at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego, while the Chargers faced off against the Oakland Raiders, according to the New York Post.

Elite Security, the company that hired the security guard, confirmed in a Dec. 20 statement it had fired the employee, whose name it cannot release due to privacy laws.
"Elite has become aware of the social media post of inappropriate actions of an Elite staff member at Qualcomm Stadium on December 18th," the company said in a statement, reports KGTV. "Elite would like to apologize to anyone who was offended by this isolated incident ... Elite insists on the highest moral standards from our employees."
According to the statement, the company requires all security guards to pass a state and federal background check, and the employee in question had a clean record and all required licenses, and simply decided to have his private moment in front of a crowded stadium.
"Elite has been providing staffing at Qualcomm Stadium for over twenty years and has never experienced this type of incident involving any of its employees," the statement said. "Elite has many loyal hard working employees and they should not be judged by the actions of this one regretful isolated incident."
But the damage was already done, after thousands of children and adults saw the additional and unwanted sideshow, as the man reportedly pleasured himself.
"So clearly Elite Security nor the San Diego Chargers care that they have a masturbating security guard at the game," one woman at the game posted on social media. "Several attempts to call both organizations with no concern for the Charger Girls, Chargers fans or kids. So yeah this happened right in front of us yesterday."
