Reporter Allegedly Harassed in NY Jets Locker Room
Ines Sainz, a reporter for Mexico's TV Azteca, addressed some inappropriate comments she says she received while conducting interviews in the New York Jets locker room Saturday.
The attractive Sainz, a former Miss Universe contestant, entered the locker room (not a new thing) to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez and began hearing what the other players were saying about her. Hear her account below!
She says she ignored the comments, but some of her fellow reporters took offense and reported the situation. Sainz does not want to press any charges and trusts the NFL will handle it.
UPDATE: New York Jets owner Woody Johnson called Sainz and offered an "open apology" to her. He also told ESPNNewYork.com he has interviewed "non-players" involved in the alleged taunting.
"Right now, we're working with the league and we're doing all the fact-finding, checking the facts, doing the interviews," Johnson said. "Interviews with the players will start [Tuesday]. We've talked to some of the non-players, but [Tuesday] we'll get into it all."
"Extra" caught up with Sainz in New York, and she told us, "No one has said my dress was inappropriate. I do my job as professional as I can do."
