School: Teen swallows memory card with nude photo

SAN ANTONIO (AP) - A suburban San Antonio high school student has been charged with evidence tampering after school officials said he swallowed a digital memory card containing a photo of a nude girl.

Officials with the Northside Independent School District said the incident happened Sept. 24 at O'Connor High School in Helotes.

District spokesman Pascual Gonzalez told the San Antonio Express-News the 16-year-old boy was showing classmates the photo when a vice principal confronted him. Gonzalez said the teen took the memory card from his phone and swallowed it.

Officials said the photo was possibly of a female student who had sent it to her then-boyfriend. But Gonzalez said  that couldn't be confirmed without the memory card.

There was enough evidence from witnesses to charge the teen.
