BOARDMAN, Ohio (WYTV) – Police arrested a Boardman High School student Monday, charging that the student had naked photos of a 15-year-old on a cell phone, according to a police report.
The report states that Boardman Police conducted an investigation into the matter and believed the student threatened the fifteen-year-old and possessed the nude photos.
A press release from Boardman Schools stated that the incident happened outside of the school over the December break.
“It’s unfortunate that it has spilled into the school because the police arrested the student on our property,” Boardman Schools Superintendent Frank Lazzeri said in the release. “The district was unaware of an investigation being conducted by Township police.”
According to the report, police searched the phone after taking it from the student and found two naked photos and evidence that the student had sent at least one of the photos to contacts in the phone.
Police released the student to the care of a parent, filing charges of menacing and pandering obscenity involving a minor.
