3 Officers Accused of Stealing Nude Pics

A California Highway Police Officer has confessed to investigators that he stole nude and racy photos from the cellphones of women arrested on drunk driving charges and sent them to at least two fellow officers for a kind of “game.” Officer Sean Harrington, 35, said he sent the photos at least six times over several years to colleagues in Dublin but learned to do it while working in Los Angeles. Harrington has worked with the CHP for five years and has been assigned to administrative duties pending the investigation. Officers Robert Hazelwood and Dion Simmons are suspected of receiving the photos and exchanging banter with Harrington. CHP Commissioner Joe Farrow said that his agency has launched an investigation. “The allegations anger and disgust me,” he said. “We expect the highest level of integrity and moral strength from everyone in the California Highway Patrol.”
