Forget Paris Hilton; here's a wireless security story that'll make one's heart pulsate the next time a cell phone or PDA lands in someone else's possession.

Houston police officer Christopher Green, after arresting a woman on suspicion of drunken driving, allegedly downloaded sexually explicit pictures from her confiscated cell phone onto his PDA and then showed them to several colleagues.

Internal investigators have stepped in to examine the situation and reports that Green's partner, George Miller, later called the woman and asked her for a date.

Both officers have been pulled from their usual patrolling duties.

Full Story.
