PORTAGE, Ind., April 14 (UPI) -- Authorities in Indiana said a high school student is facing child pornography charges after he threatened to display a nude photo of a fellow student.

Portage police said a girl in the freshman class at Portage High School told Principal Caren Swickard a boy in her class had threatened to post a nude photo of her online unless she gave him her saxophone, the Chicago Sun-Times reported Thursday.

The boy, whose name and age were not released, told the principal and police he had been told by the band director to use the girl's saxophone because she did not need it. He said he reminded the girl he had the picture when she refused.

Police said they examined the boy's phone and found nude pictures of a 14-year-old girl and a 15-year-old girl.

The boy was taken to the Porter County Juvenile Detention facility on a charge of possessing child pornography.
