A teenager in Arizona has been arrested and charged after a ridiculous prank he pulled in his team photos. While taking a team photo with his football squad, he decided to expose his penis as a joke.
Hunter Osborn, 19, was charged with 69 misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and one felony count of furnishing harmful items to minors, after other parents complained to the school. Once the school saw what was happening, they had to call in police.
“It is still an ongoing investigation,” Berry said. “The number of charges may go up or down depending upon how the investigation continues.”
America Now reports:
Det. Steve Berry of the Mesa Police Department says that the number of charges was reached because there were 69 students present when the photo was taken, as well as 10 faculty members. The students range in age from 15-1 and if individuals in the photo are older than 18 and choose not to press charges, the number of charges can be reduced.
The team photo features Osborn among his football team, with two teammates in front of him appearing to leave just enough space for him to expose himself. Several students told CBS News affiliate KPHO that they didn’t even notice that Osborn was exposing himself in the photo until it was pointed out by adults and the controversy arose.
“He made a dumb mistake a little bit, but I don’t think he should be charged so heavily for that,” said high school senior Zach Anthony.
The photo was printed in the school’s yearbook, which was sent out to 3,400 students, and in the school’s football program, before anyone noticed that Osborn had exposed himself.Osborn reportedly exposed himself in the photo after being dared to by a teammate.
