An NBC News digital producer was arrested this week because he allegedly secretly taped himself having sex with his girlfriend and uploaded the video to a porn site, police tell the New York Post.

Carlo Dellaverson, 30, is facing unlawful surveillance and harassment charges after he allegedly hid a camera in the bedroom he shared with his girlfriend and secretly recorded the two of them having sex.

The woman reportedly discovered the video on his home computer several months later and broke off the relationship. The Post reports that he admitted to posting the tape online in a subsequent email to the woman.

NBC issued a statement Tuesday, saying, "We are taking the matter very seriously, and will determine the appropriate course of action once we have learned the facts."

Dellaverson's lawyer told the Post that he "maintains his innocence" and called the Post's story "factually inaccurate."
