A Houston police officer has been taken off the streets for allegedly downloading sexually explicit pictures from a female suspect's confiscated mobe to his PDA and sharing them with colleagues, the Houston Chronicle reports. Christopher Green arrested the unnamed 24-year-old Chinese student on 24 November 2004 on suspicion of drunken driving.

Green reportedly discovered nude photographs of the woman on her phone which he subsequently showed to an assistant district attorney and a bailiff at the woman's court hearing in January. His partner, George Miller, is alleged to have called the woman and asked for a date, investigators claim.

Both men have been suspended from patrol duties pending an investigation. Houston Police Officers' Union attorney, Aaron Suder, said: "We're sort of waiting to see what's going to happen." Whether Suder is referring to potential disciplinary action or the response to Miller's offer of a night out is not noted. Suder did, however, confirm that neither man is likely to face criminal charges. ®
