Police involved after high schooler's sexually explicit video spread around school

Posted: Updated:
SOUTHGATE, Mich. (WJBK) - Southgate police are investigating after a sexually explicit cell phone video of a high school student began circulating among others at the school.

Superintendent Bill Grusecki of Southgate Community School District says administrators are obligated to contact authorities when nudity or pornographic material is involved in any matter.

The cell phone video in question is said to be of a 9th grade female student dancing around when she began to strip naked. Another student began recording and has apparently shared the video with others at Southgate Anderson High School. Students tell FOX 2's Taryn Asher it happened at a house party over the weekend where there was drinking.

The incident is under investigation and suspensions and even criminal charges are possible.

Students tells Asher authorities at the school are taking this very seriously and have been personally checking people's phones.

"People come into our classroom and girls would get their phones taken away, get called down to the office. I know a few friends that they don't have their phones anymore. The cops have them," says Tori Creighton. Asher reports the school and police have confiscated more than a dozen phones.

Authorities are trying to pinpoint who took the video and who helped spread it around. The video was not recorded on school property but officials believe it was likely spread on there.

The superintendent says he hopes this sends a strong message to parents that they need to be aware of how kids are using their cell phones.
