MESA, AZ – When it comes to football players these days, getting arrested you don’t have to look far to see one who’s been arrested, and when you combine that with a school prank, there’s a good chance nothing good’s going to come out of it.
According to KPHO/KTVK NEWS, a student at Red Mountain High School in Mesa is now facing numerous counts of criminal charges for indecent exposure after his prank was published in the school’s yearbook, according to the Mesa Police Department.
Somewhere around 3,400 students received the yearbook before the image was brought to attention of the school’s administrators. To add insult to injury, the photo was also used in the football program, which was sold at numerous games to families and fellow students.
Berry said police were made aware of the picture on Saturday. The student, 19-year-old Hunter Osborn, was contacted and interviewed about the picture.

Police said Osborn knowingly exposed the top of his penis through the top of the waistband of his football uniform pants during the photo session. With enough to charge the student via the photo and admission, Osborn was booked for 69 counts of indecent exposure. Ironically enough, there were also 69 players in the photo. You can’t make this stuff up. The counts specifically? A class 1 misdemeanor and one count of furnishing harmful items to minors, a class 4 felony.

Mesa Public Schools released this statement on the matter saying:
“The district is dismayed by the actions of the students involved in the photograph. Their behavior does not reflect the values of Red Mountain High School or Mesa Public Schools. Upon learning of the photograph, school administration immediately contacted police and is cooperating fully with the investigation. Disciplinary action will follow policy and may be based on the outcome of the police investigation. The school and district are conducting an investigation to determine what actions might have prevented the publication of the photograph, so appropriate safeguards can be put in place going forward. While the small size of the photograph as published makes the details difficult to discern, the yearbook has been recalled so the school can make a minor but critical edit for the inappropriate content.”
