Amarillo police captain arrested in visual materials case

AMARILLO, Texas (AP) — A 57-year-old Texas police captain has been arrested on charges of unlawful disclosure or promotion of intimate visual material.

An Amarillo police statement says Capt. Jason Zang was arrested Friday in an investigation that began with a complaint March 7. Officials say Zang, who’s been an Amarillo police officer since 1990, was commander of the Service Division.

Potter County criminal court records show Zang was being held on $7,500 bond. Court records did not immediately list an attorney to speak for Zang, who’s been placed on administrative leave amid the investigation.

Amarillo police did not immediately provide additional details on the case.

A message left with a police spokeswoman wasn’t immediately returned Friday. Texas Rangers are also investigating.
