One of the former Memphis police officers took photos of Tyre Nichols following his brutal beating and texted it to at least five other people, according to documents released by the Tennessee Peace Officers Standards and Training Commission on Tuesday.

Officer Demetrius Haley “stood over Nichols as he lay propped against a police car and took photographs,” which he then texted to the other officers involved, as well as to a female acquaintance, The Associated Press reported.

“Your on-duty conduct was unjustly, blatantly unprofessional and unbecoming for a sworn public servant,” the Memphis Police Department wrote, per AP.

Haley sent the photo of Nichols waiting for medical attention to at least five people, including at least one outside the department, according to police documents. Police officials reported that sharing photos or information from cases or stops was against policy, according to The New York Times.

Five of the officers involved were charged with second-degree murder and were also charged to be de-certified so they can no longer work as police officers in Tennessee, per the Times.
