(CBS/AP) NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A federal air marshal has been removed from his duties after he was arrested and accused of taking cellphone photographs underneath women's skirts as they boarded a plane at Nashville International Airport.

Nashville police say Adam Bartsch was on duty on Southwest Airline Flight 3132 on Thursday when a witness noticed he was taking the photos and grabbed his cellphone. Police say the witness notified a flight attendant and Bartsch was taken off the flight and charged with disorderly conduct.

The Transportation Security Administration released a statement saying, "TSA does not tolerate criminal behavior. The agency immediately removed this individual from his current duties and is in the process of suspending or terminating his employment. TSA continues to assist with the investigation."

Bartsch is due in court Nov. 14.
