Security guards fired after taking pic with quarterback Tom Brady

By Joyce Lupiani. CREATED Dec 6, 2013

Many of us have done it. We see an opportunity to take a photo with someone famous and we just can't resist.

Two part-time security guards at a football stadium have found out the hard way that a simple photo can get you in a whole lot of trouble.

The Reliant Stadium in Houston has a policy against its employees taking photographs with football players or asking for autographs.

Joel Williams and Christopher Moore were fired after taking a picture with New England Patriot's quarterback Tom Brady after last Sunday's game, according to KHOU 11 News.

Williams says that everyone does it though despite the policy and he doesn't understand why he and Moore were targeted.

Williams, a graduate student at Texas South University, says that he loved the job and will miss it.

Contemporary Services Corporation, the company that provides security at the stadium, says it is standing behind their decision to fire the guards.
