 Peter Kiever has also undergone some EMS training at a nearby community college. He has done some EMS work in Rowan County, according to Facebook.

Kiever also was involved in lifeguard training in Myrtle Beach in the summer of 2011, according to Facebook.

The arrest comes just one month after the SBI launched a state-wide investigation into pictures of naked teens posted on the social networking site.

Kiever is charged with first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor and second-degree recording the photo of a minor engaged in sex, according to the Rowan County Detention Center.

Kiever was being held on a $500,000 bond.
