CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. -- A State Trooper was arrested in Chesterfield County Saturday on charges relating to the alleged distribution of 'revenge porn,' according to CBS 6.

Virginia State Police say they arrested 24-year-old trooper Jaleel Thacker of North Chesterfield on two misdemeanor counts of dissemination of images of another.

The "revenge porn" law as it's referred to references the distribution or sale of video or still images of another person who is totally nude in a state of undress.

Thacker was hired by the department in July of 2018 as a probationary-trooper in Chesterfield County.

Before becoming a state trooper, he served in the Marine Corps.

Thacker was released on a summons and has been placed on leave without pay.
