Morrissey took to his website True to You Wednesday, claiming he was sexually assaulted by a security officer at San Francisco International Airport earlier this week, who allegedly "groped my penis and testicles,"

In the post, the singer writes he was in the walk-through scanner before he was approached by an airport security officer, who was "the General Manger On Duty." Morrissey writes the official "stopped me, crouched before me and groped my penis and testicles."

The former Smiths front man adds two members of the British Airways Special Services were there and witnessed the alleged assault, writing they were "horrified" and suggested he file a complaint. Morrissey writes the officer in question was confronted and had the following conversation:

You have just sexually groped this man.
Officer: That's just your opinion.
What you have done is illegal.
Officer: That's just your opinion.
You have no right to do what you have just done.
Officer: That's just your opinion.

Morrissey writes:

Apart from "that's just your opinion," he would not comment, even though, since the penis and testicles were mine and no one else's, then my opinion must surely have some meaning. But, of course, what the airport security officer was saying was: your opinion will never count in the eyes of the law. The words "that's just your opinion" volunteered themselves from this 'officer's' mouth before he had even heard the question. He knew he could be confronted, but he also knew that he could never be challenged (even though the entire incident is most certainly on CCTV camera).
