A teenager who allegedly filmed his high school administrator nude in the locker room of a local fitness center was subsequently arrested for invading the man’s privacy after a video clip was uploaded to Shapchat and shared by students.

Clayton Valley Charter High School Executive Director David Linzey was in the locker room of a fitness center in the 2800 block of Jones Road on Feb. 20 when the 17-year-old made the recording with a cellphone.

Members of the gym where the incident occurred said that cell phones are prohibited in the locker room, a ban which is reportedly widely ignored.

School officials reported the incident to the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s office a day after it was discovered that students at Clayton Valley were sharing still photos of Linzey taken from the video clip.

The teen who made the recording has not been identified. He was arrested and cited on suspicion of invasion of privacy before being released to his parents.

From the Office of the Sheriff:

On Tuesday, February 21, 2017, at about 11:40 a.m., the Office of the Sheriff was dispatched to a report of harassment that occurred at a fitness center on the 2800 block of Jones Road in unincorporated Walnut Creek.

A Deputy Sheriff spoke to the male victim who was apparently secretly recorded with a cell phone while in a locker room the day prior, on February 20, 2017. The video and photos were posted to Snapchat.

The Deputy contacted the 17-year-old suspect, who is not being identified due to his age. The suspect was later arrested for invasion of privacy. He was cited for violation of California Penal Code 647(j) and then released to his parents.

The investigation into this incident is continuing. Anyone with any information on this incident is asked to contact the Office of the Sheriff Investigation Division at (925) 313-2600. For any tips, call (866) 846-3592 to leave an anonymous voice message or email: tips@so.cccounty.us.


  1. Gee , I’m glad to hear that one can still get in trouble for something like this!
    I thought somehow ‘freedom of speech’ would be used to excuse it.
    So I’m glad we still have some privacy rights. Now, what to do about that drone that will fly over my house and hover over my backyard taking pictures.
