OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Charges have been filed against a former member of the Oklahoma governor's staff who was investigated on allegations that he took photos or video up a woman's skirt at the State Capitol.

Oklahoma County District Court records show that charges of offering false or fraudulent evidence, a felony, and a misdemeanor charge of destruction of evidence were filed Tuesday against 29-year-old Travis Goss Brauer.

Brauer resigned July 11 as Gov. Mary Fallin's executive assistant. Court records do not indicate whether he is represented by an attorney.

The charges allege Brauer destroyed or altered a cellphone and a laptop that were part of an investigation by the Oklahoma Highway Patrol. Troopers investigated allegations that Brauer took "upskirt" photos or video of a woman without her permission during a May budget meeting.
