CONCORD, Calif. (KTVU) - A 17-year-old student was arrested today after allegedly taking a nude recording of a Concord high school administrator at a fitness center in unincorporated Walnut Creek and uploading it to social media earlier this
month, according to a spokesperson from the district.
The victim, Clayton Valley Charter High School Executive Director David Linzey, was in the locker room at the fitness center in the 2800 block of Jones Road on Feb. 20 when he was secretly recorded with a cellphone by
the teen. The video was uploaded to Snapchat, CVCHS spokesman Mike McCey said.
McCey said the incident was reported to the Contra Costa County Sheriff's office on Feb. 21 after it was discovered that several students had distributed still photos from the video to others on campus.
The teen that recorded the video, who is not being identified at this time, was arrested and cited today on suspicion of invasion of privacy before being released to his parents.
A statement from the district said, "CVCHS takes disciplinary issues seriously and we never comment publicly on any specific matter related to our students. We would encourage the media to respect the privacy of our
students and to recognize that discipline is always confidential."
The sheriff's office continues to investigate the incident and anyone with further information is encouraged to contact deputies at (925) 313-2600.
KTVU is told that after the nude photo surfaced some students had their phones confiscated by administrators.
A girl who saw the photo says the school's director has faced criticism for his treatment of staff members.
The gym where the images were reportedly captured is just blocks from high school and many students work out there.
In a statement the school district said "CVCHS takes disciplinary issues seriously and we never comment publicly on any specific matter related to our students."
The Concord Police Department and the Contra Costa County Sheriff's Department are also investigating how these images were captured.
A district spokesperson says it's not clear at this point if a crime was in fact committed.
