Texas Firefighter Charged With Taking Secret Bathroom Pics

A Texas firefighter has been indicted on charges that he used his smartphone camera to secretly take photos in a fire station bathroom.

Last Thursday, a Walker County grand jury returned a true bill against Christopher Alexander Clark, 31, on one count of violating Texas Penal Code Section § 21.15, Improper Photography or Video Recording.  Clark was a volunteer at the New Waverly Volunteer Fire Department, Walker County ESD#2.

The device was discovered by a female member on March 4, 2012 when she went into a fire station bathroom to change. She said she heard a snapping noise and noticed a smartphone on the floor near the toilet. The phone had an application running that caused it to take continuous photos.

Besides containing photos of the female victim, the smartphone also captured images of Clark placing the phone. The charge is a felony and Clark faces 2 years in jail and a $10,000 fine.

    I am a firefighter paramedic full time permanent who works for the department of defense, the field of work is full of very proud very prideful individuals. Individuals like this give themselves a very poor representation of what working in the fire service is. This person should be ashamed of himself and I hope he spends some
    Time in jail. This by no means is a representation of the fire service or the thousands of men & women who work hard everyday with the public to save lives, homes and our environment.
