Aberdeen Police are investigating an allegation that an Aberdeen Middle School teacher sent a sexually explicit video to a student.

School officials told police Monday morning that the video featured a teacher and had been sent to a student’s cellphone, which police seized, according to a Police Department Facebook post Tuesday afternoon. Detectives are investigating to determine if any charges will be filed.

Harford County Public Schools officials said an art teacher at the middle school was placed on administrative leave with pay on Monday, and that a student brought the video to their attention.

In a message to families on Monday, school system officials said the video had circulated among students on SnapChat.
