Rodriguez said his team is still investigating the picture to avoid a similar incident from happening to someone else.
“I’m happier that it was me than it was my better half or one of the children, then I would’ve been really…,” he said before cutting himself short. “It was a really weird thing.”

Rodriguez’s decision not to pursue legal action in the event they catch the peeping tom could be because of New York’s lenient privacy laws which could make it hard for him to bring the case before a judge.
Despite the invasion of privacy, Rodriguez joked that the photographer may have caught the former athlete in his best state: “The one thing is, I actually do my best thinking there but I wasn’t ready for that picture.”
