A digital producer with NBC News was arrested on Tuesday after police say he secretly filmed himself having sex with his girlfriend, then distributed the tape online.
Carlo Dellaverson, 30, was arrested by New York police officers early Tuesday morning on charges of disseminating unlawful surveillance and civil harassment, the New York Post reported.
According to the report, Dellaverson is accused of recording a sexual encounter with his then-girlfriend using a hidden camera at the couple’s Greenwich Village apartment earlier this year.
The victim found the video months later on his computer, the Post reported. After confronting him about the video, Dellaverson reportedly acknowledged filming the encounter and uploading a copy of the tape to the social pornography website XTube.
An attorney retained by Dellaverson said the Post’s story was “factually inaccurate” and that his client intends to fight the charges.
Dellaverson worked as an online news producer for NBC’s digital platforms. NBC News did not return a request for comment from The Desk, but said in a statement distributed to other media outlets that the network was “taking the matter very seriously, and will determine the appropriate course of action once we have learned the facts.”
