SAN ANTONIO -- A Churchill High School football player faced disciplinary action for taking a photo of his teammate's backside and posting it to Twitter.
Officials with the North East Independent School District said the football player took a photo of his teammate while the two were in the locker room.
"Two friends were horsing around, took a picture and posted it online, and about 30 minutes later, the student realized that that wasn't a good idea and it was removed,” said Aubrey Chancellor, NEISD spokeswoman.
Laws protecting the student prohibit the publication of the name and age of the student or what sort of punishment was taken.
"After reviewing all the facts in this case and talking to both students' parents, it really just came down to a case of bad judgment and horseplay,” Chancellor said.
However, an email from someone identified as “A Very Concerned Parent” stated:
"The taking of photos of a nude student is abhorrent, let alone the posting of the image(s) on the web. Once it's on the web, it's on there forever. Taking nude photos of a student and posting on the internet I believe is illegal/unlawful.”
NEISD said the picture was not sexual in nature, and the parents of both students involved are satisfied with the disciplinary actions taken.
