The District of Columbia police department says one of its officers has been charged with producing child pornography after he allegedly took nude pictures of a 15-year-old girl who had been reported as a runaway.

Police say Officer Marc Washington was arrested hours after the department learned of the allegations.

According to police, Washington joined the department in 2006 and was assigned to the Seventh District, in southeast Washington, at the time of his arrest. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Police Chief Cathy Lanier says in a statement the allegation is "shocking and disturbing.''
