Matt Riddle had quite story to tell about his experience at JFK airport, and he wasn’t happy about it. He accused airport security of sexually assaulting him, but we have a bit more information about the situation that the Original Bro did not initially share.

Matt Riddle got on Instagram, and he said that he was “sexually assaulted” at JFK airport. Those were some pretty heavy allegations to lay down.

“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****** !!! Don’t know they’re 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!”

Ringside News received word about this situation, and we got the other side of the story. An officer who was around for the ordeal reached out to us and let us know what really happened.


We were told that Matt Riddle was “heavily intoxicated on alcohol and potentially other substances (likely weed).” This is a part that the Original Bro left out of his version of the event.

We were also told that Matt Riddle was, “acting disruptive between his transfer of flights.” That is when officers received the complaint call. Matt Riddle also “looked intoxicated and his words at times felt slowed/slurred.”

Matt Riddle was causing a scene at the airport, and that is what instigated this messy ordeal. It appears that his version of the story doesn’t match up with those who were called to handle the situation.

There is a lot more to unpack on this situation, and there will be updates. For more, keep it tuned with us here at Ringside News. As always, leave your comments in the space below to let us know what you’re thinking!
