SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Police believe a northern Utah gynecologist shared child pornography images and had explicit online discussions while using the internet at several hospitals.

The Davis County Sheriff's Office said Thursday that Nathan Clark Ward has been arrested on suspicion of sexual exploitation of a minor.

Sgt. DeeAnn Servey says Ward was released from jail Wednesday after posting $100,000 bond.

Deputies say Ward claimed in online chats to have raped two teenagers. Servey says police are still investigating those statements and whether there are any victims, including any relatives. She says police don't have information indicating any of Ward's adult patients were victims.

She did not know if Ward has an attorney. A message at a phone number listed for Ward was not returned.

Lakeview OB/GYN Clinic spokeswoman Hadley Alvey says Ward has been suspended.
