WWE RAW Superstar Matt Riddle was traveling on Saturday and he took to Instagram to accuse an officer at the JFK Airport in Queens, New York of sexually assaulting him.

The former United States Champion shared a picture of the person who allegedly sexually assaulted him and wrote:

“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!!!

A$$hole!!! Don’t know their Twitter or Instagram handles but I took pictures, normally I’m like whatever but today was really weird and uncomfortable and they made a point to make me feel small and useless.

Definitely one of the most uncomfortable travel days I’ve ever had thanks NYC you’re so progressive and accepting!”

He later deleted the post.

However, his post has triggered an investigation into the incident by the police, according to TMZ.

TMZ reported that “Law enforcement sources tell us Port Authority officers got a call for a disorderly person who was deplaning, and they met him in the terminal. As it turns out, that was Riddle.”

It was also noted that no official police report was filed and that Riddle, who was described as apologetic, was allowed to leave the scene, but then posted about the alleged sexual assault.

Riddle tweeted the following later:

“Finally leaving JFK and I never wanna come back here again 🤙”

In an update from PWInsider, Riddle has also pulled from this coming weekend’s Live Events in Idaho and Washington, where he was booked to appear.

According to the Wrestling Observer, Riddle didn’t appear on last night’s RAW because of a health issue:

“He was not on the show this week, but that’s because he had a double ear infection and bronchitis. It was not punishment as far as I know. He may have been punished also, but as far as I know, it’s an illness.”
