NEW YORK: After the arrest last month of a 65-year-old professor at the University of Florida for secretly videotaping breasts and thighs of his teen students with a camera pen, a US air marshal was arrested on Thursday (Oct 17) for taking photos of female passengers underneath their skirts.
Air marshal Adam Bartsch, 28, was caught while taking photos of women passengers underneath their skirts as they climbed on to the plane at Nashville International Airport.
The air marshal, who also scheduled to fly to Tampa by the same flight, was caught when a witness saw him photographing female passengers underneath their skirts as climbed the tarmac.
The witness grabbed the cell phone from the air marshal and raised alarm. Airport police arrested him and took him off the flight.
The air marshal confessed to taking to 10 to 12 upskirt pictures and indulging in this activity in the past.
He is being held on $10,000.
In fact, the voyeuristic air marshal was on duty at the time of his offence.
His employers, the Transportation Security Administration, told CNN, “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.’’
