LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Police arrested a Lexington man who is accused of posting a nude photograph of an ex-girlfriend on Facebook without her consent.

Authorities arrested 37-year-old Manuel Bowling on Saturday on a charge of distributing sexually explicit images without consent, which is more commonly known as “revenge porn.”

Bowling’s former girlfriend told police that in January he posted messages which included a photo in which she had lifted her shirt.

The post also reportedly showed her phone number, and Bowling also allegedly tagged her employer on the message.

The charge is the result of Kentucky’s new revenge porn law, which went into effect in July.
