Weitzell is accused of taking the pictures during a game at the University of Vermont Jan. 20.

A part-time employee, Weitzell was placed on administrative leave and then fired as the investigation by UNH officials continued.

Weitzell did not immediately return a call seeking comment. It is not known whether he has a lawyer.
