During their investigation, it was determined that the account in question belonged to Kitna. The investigation also found that Kitna shared a picture of a minor exposing herself.

Kitna allegedly shared the images in question during a chat with two Discord users, according to the police. The person on the other end allegedly said “Wait what. Dude. Are they under 18. Bruh. Nooo.” after receiving the pictures.

A search warrant was issued on Wednesday at Kitna’s residence. Kitna gave the authorities his phone when they came to search his home.

On his phone, according to TMZ Sports, the authorities found three additional child sexual abuse photos. Two nude juveniles were allegedly in different poses.

He was granted bail on Thursday after a bond hearing. His father Jon Kitna spoke during the hearing.
