A Dallas police officer has been fired after an internal investigation revealed he sent nude photos of himself to a 17-year-old high school student. Police Chief David Kunkle on Thursday fired Officer Bryan Crews, who had been with the department for four years.

Sgt. Warren Mitchell, a police spokesman, told The Associated Press on Friday that Crews had a sexual relationship with the girl, who is now 18.

In Mitchell's words, "We feel that his actions, particularly sending it to a high school student, crossed the boundary of what would be acceptable behavior in this department."

Mitchell also said a female police sergeant has been suspended for 10 days for exchanging nude photos with Crews.
