BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Baton Rouge authorities say an assistant principal at Southeast Middle School has been arrested after admitting to investigators he sent nude pictures to a 15-year-old girl one night while he was drunk.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, the admission by 42-year-old Edwin James Chastang comes about a month after the teen’s mother alerted police to the pictures on her daughter’s Facebook page.

Keith Bromery, spokesman for the East Baton Rouge Parish School System, tells The Advocate were told of the arrest Tuesday and have suspended Chastang with pay pending the outcome of the investigation.

Chastang was booked with computer-aided solicitation of a minor.

It was unclear whether he has an attorney.
