NEW YORK (CBS/AP) Mexican sportscaster Ines Sainz tweeted that she was "dying of discomfort" when she entered the New York Jets locker room on Saturday to interview quarterback Mark Sanchez.
"I'm dying of discomfort!" the former Miss Spain said on Twitter at 1:50 p.m. on Saturday. "I am in the Jets Locker room waiting for Mark Sanchez, while trying not to look to anywhere!"
Prior to her presence in the locker room - where players called out to the TV Azteca reporter - footballs were thrown in her direction by a Jets coach during practice.
She told TV Azteca that though she was embarrassed, she didn't take it to heart and didn't realize it was going to become such a big deal, according to CNN.
"It was definitely a joking tone, very amicable," Sainz said in an interview with a colleague. "I wasn't offended."
On Sunday, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said that the league and the Jets began looking into the situation when they were made aware of it Saturday night.
The Jets released a statement about the incident, saying that they "will continue to work with the League to gather the facts and take any appropriate steps necessary to maintain a respectful environment for the media."
The statement says owner Woody Johnson spoke to Sainz on Sunday to discuss the incident, and that he "stressed to Ines that he expects all members of the Jets organization to conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times."
