A Kentucky television reporter was caught off guard when a stranger kissed her on the cheek while she was live on TV reporting on a local music event.
Sara Rivest was reporting for NBC affiliate WAVE 3 in Louisville about the Bourbon and Beyond festival Friday when someone she didn’t know kissed her on the cheek.
The person was later identified and charged. Eric Goodman, 42, was charged by the Jefferson County Attorney with harassment with physical contact, a misdemeanour.
Rivest posted video of the incident on Twitter.
