The pervy jogger who slapped a TV reporter’s behind during a 10K in Georgia has been identified by officials — and banned from future races.

Race organizers had immediately vowed to find the handsy creep who left WSAV-TV anchor Alex Bozarjian feeling “violated, objectified, and embarrassed” while she reported on Saturday’s Savannah Bridge Run.

“Yesterday afternoon we identified him and shared his information with the reporter and her station,” the Savannah Sports Council tweeted, without revealing his name publicly.

“We will not tolerate behavior like this at a Savannah Sports Council event,” the council said in another post.

“We have made the decision to ban this individual from registering for all Savannah Sports Council owned races.”.

“To the man who smacked my butt on live TV this morning: You violated, objectified, and embarrassed me,” Bozarjian tweeted later on Saturday, alongside footage of the on-air assault.

The reporter has yet to comment on the creep’s identity — and has not said whether she plans to press charges. »

Participants were then presented with half of the faces wearing “richer” upper-body clothing, and the other half with “poorer” clothing.

Regardless of these changes, the results remained consistent: Faces were judged as significantly more competent when the clothing was perceived as “richer.”

The paper, “Economic status cues from clothes affect perceived competence from faces,” first appeared online Dec. 9 in Nature Human Behaviour. »
