AIKEN, SC (WFXG) -

Two teens are facing charges after officers said they posted a photo of a South Aiken High special needs student using the restroom. 

Jeffrey Alec Forrester, 19, and Austin Dean Thames, 17, are each charged with promoting obscenity, according to the Aiken Department of Public Safety. 

Officers said Thames took the picture on Dec. 17 in the bathroom and sent it to Forrester using Snapchat, a photo messaging app, according to an incident report. Forrester then took a screen shot of the photo and posted it to his account. 

An assistant principal at the school contacted the Aiken Department of Public Safety when she saw the post on Forrester's account, according to the report. It had already gotten 28 likes. 

Warrants for Forrester and Thames were issued Tuesday, and the two were arrested and transported to the Aiken County Detention Center.
