A man in North Texas has been arrested for placing a hidden camera inside the women's bathroom at a local restaurant. According to NBCDFW, 64 year-old Andrew Boden hid a camera disguised as a door hook in a Braum's restaurant in Grapevine, Texas. The camera was discovered when a customer hung her purse on one of the hooks and it fell down. WFAA notes that the police caught Boden because he "accidentally snapped a picture of himself as he was installing the device" in the bathroom and once they circulated the photo, tips led them to Boden.

According to a search warrant affidavit, Boden admitted that he has placed cameras in "several different locations throughout the Dallas Ft. Worth area." NBCDFW notes that cameras shaped like door hooks and electrical outlets have been found at a Starbucks and a Corner Bakery since his arrest. Boden also admitted that he reviewed the images from the cameras on his computer at work.

Sadly, this isn't the first case of hidden camera's in restaurant bathrooms. Last year a Vancouver restaurateur turned himself in after being charged withinstalling a device that allegedly "captured footage of people from the waist down" in the "only private space in the restaurant." Boden was released on a $2,000 bail. Go, watch:
