ANDERSON, IN (WAVE) – A topless picture of a teacher resulted in the suspension of students.

Joshua Troutt, 13, said he and three other students were in a classroom at Highland Middle School playing a game on a school issued iPad. He said one of the students pressed a button and a photograph of his teacher's bare chest was revealed.

"It's not our fault that she had the photo on there. We couldn't do anything not to look at it, if it just popped up when he pressed the button. It was her fault that she had the photo on there because her iPhone synched to it. She had to have pressed something to make all of her photos sync onto there," Troutt explained.

Even though it was an accident, Troutt and several other students were suspended and threatened with expulsion.

The school district said they took preventative action against the teacher, but would not elaborate.
