    An Australian man was charged with assaulting Sarah Hyland, the actress who plays Haley Dunphy on Modern Family on Friday. The 23-year-old was at a social function the night before when she was allegedly groped by a man asking to pose for a photo. The 29-year-old man was freed on bail but faces five years in prison. “Sorry to all the fans outside the #qantas event that I didn’t get to say hi to but I had to leave due to an inappropriate touch of a fan,” Hyland tweeted.
