Free Beer & Hot Wings: Cop Gets In Trouble For Allegedly Forwarding Nude Photos From Suspect’s Phone to His [Video]
A California Highway Patrol officer in Dublin, Calif., is in trouble for a bit of an invasion of privacy after booking a woman on DUI charges.
While the woman, being referred to as Jane Doe to protect her identity, was in custody, the officer allegedly went through her phone and forwarded nude and semi-nude photos of her to his personal cell phone, KTVU-TV reported.
It wasn't until after the woman was released that she noticed the photos had been forwarded to an unknown cell phone number.
She is, of course, humiliated by the whole ordeal.
"I'm very disappointed and disgusted with the allegations of misconduct, and I want to thank the young lady for having the courage to bring this to our attention," Chief Avery A. Browne, chief of California Highway Patrol's Golden Gate Division, said during a news conference Saturday.
The Contra Costa County District Attorney's Office is aware of the incident and is investigating it, along with numerous other similar cases.
An announcement has not yet been made on whether or not charges will be filed.
