  • "Modern Family" star Sarah Hyland, 23, was posing with fans outside the "Modern Family" party hosted by Qantas Tuesday in Sydney, Australia, when she was allegedly groped by a male fan.

    According to E! News, Hyland became visibly emotional and teared up after the alleged fan grabbed her breast. Security intervened after she screamed, "Don't touch me there!," the news source reports. The New South Wales police confirmed that a 29-year-old man was arrested in relation to the incident.

    Hyland took to Twitter to address her fans after she abruptly left the party.
