A former Tempe police officer accused of posting and selling nude photos of his ex-girlfriend on the Internet has agreed to surrender his Arizona police certification.

Arizona Peace Officer Standards and Training Board says 42-year-old Curtis G. Baumgarth has reached a consent agreement in his case.

The Arizona Republic says Baumgarth is on probation after pleading guilty to attempted computer tampering in January 2009. He also was ordered to pay $1,165 to the ex-girlfriend he was accused of harassing.

Baumgarth was arrested in February 2008 on suspicion of three charges connected to threatening and/or computer tampering. He worked 14 years for Tempe police before he was fired in May 2008.
