Lawsuit alleges groping by guard at Alice in Chains concert

A San Diego woman is suing Elite Show Services, a long-time contractor for Qualcomm Stadium, on allegations that a guard deliberately touched her chest without her consent at a concert. 


The plaintiff in the lawsuit, filed Wednesday in San Diego Superior Court, was entering the music venue at Symphony Towers on Oct. 2 to see a performance of the band Alice in Chains when she encountered the guard at a security checkpoint, according to court records. 

The female guard was frisking the plaintiff when she reached — without warning or permission — under the plaintiff’s sweater and put her hand on the plaintiff’s breasts, the lawsuit said. 

Then, “loudly and mockingly,” the guard “announced to nearby concert-goers” that the plaintiff was not wearing a bra, according to the lawsuit. When the plaintiff looked to her fiancé for help, the guard laughed and said, “‘Oh, is that your husband? Yeah, the husbands like to watch when I do this.’”

The lawsuit identifies the female security guard as Jane Doe because the plaintiff didn’t know her name. The San Diego Union-Tribune is withholding the plaintiff’s name at her attorney’s request because she is an alleged victim of sexual battery.

The plaintiff’s attorney, Dan Gilleon, said his client was traumatized by the incident. He said it’s particularly troubling in light of a more recent incident in which a male Elite security guard was caught on video
