LOS ANGELES (AP) — A judge has upheld the firing of a former Los Angeles police officer who improperly took a photo of Rihanna's battered face that eventually ended up on celebrity website TMZ.

Superior Court Judge Luis Lavin issued a ruling Thursday saying that the firing of former officer Rebecca Reyes was proper and her conduct should preclude her from being a peace officer.

Reyes acknowledged she used her personal cellphone to take a picture of an evidence photo that depicted Rihanna's injuries after she was beaten by then-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009. She also acknowledged sharing it with other officers, but denied leaking it to TMZ.
Reyes' attorney accepted the ruling without argument Thursday afternoon.

Reyes had argued that there wasn't evidence presented to a disciplinary board that Reyes actually leaked the photo to TMZ or disobeyed a superior officer's order to come forward.
