Madison man’s upskirting camera explodes, injuring foot

MADISON (WKOW) — A man who police say purchased a shoe-mounted camera with the intention of taking "upskirt" photos of women was injured when the camera’s battery exploded.

According to a post today in Madison Police Chief Mike Koval’s blog (item No. 5 here), officers at the West Police District station were contacted by a 32-year-old man who wanted to turn himself in to police.

The subject reported he had purchased a shoe camera that he intended to use to take "upskirt" videos of females, but the camera battery had exploded prior to obtaining any video, injuring the subject’s foot.

The subject was counseled on his actions and released from the scene because no video had been taken. Police say their investigation is ongoing.
