BOSTON (CBS) – Attorney General Martha Coakley said that her office does not intend to pursue further action against the local blogger that posted photos of Tom Brady’s naked son last week.

The controversy surrounds a posting on Barstool Sports last week featuring Tom Brady’s son Benjamin, who was pictured nude while with mom Gisele Bundchen. The post contained a few comments referring to the 2-year-old’s privates.

“We obviously had some calls about it, and the picture itself and the posting was certainly troubling and we believe inappropriate,” Coakley told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 Tuesday.

Coakley, who said she spent much of her career prosecuting cases of child abuse and exploitation, said officials spoke to Portnoy and asked him to remove the controversial post from his website.

“We wanted to do an investigation around the intentions he had here. It’s why we did ask him to take down that posting in the best interest of the child involved. He agreed to do that. We appreciate that. It was the right thing to do,” said Coakley.
